Islington’s King’s Head Theater is hosting something a little different this month, “exploring the bittersweet richness of darkness, with the creamy decadence of light.”
Written and directed by artist Le Gateau Chocolat, and co-written and narrated by Tommy Bradson, Liminal is a cycle of opera songs that features a meditation asking, “Where do we go and who do we become when we lose our anchor? “
He is performed by Robert Barbaro, Grace Nyandoro, Honey Rouhani and Dan D’Souza.
The team behind it says: “For years, in a small room at the back of a pub, audiences have seen the greatest operas reworked, redesigned and updated. But what happens when Tosca takes her taxi home at the end of the night?
When the Figaro has a Zoom meeting at 11am? “
