Chamber Pot Opera

Date: 7 Mar 2019

The first opera designed to be performed in a public bathroom tells the story of three women meeting for the first time.

One is in an abusive relationship, another is terrified that she has come on too strong on a date, and the third has been promoted through the glass ceiling to land her dream job. Together they sing of shared histories, traumas and fantasies using a catalogue of popular music from the operas of Puccini, Mozart and Bizet.

A uniquely intimate production, Chamber Pot Opera will be performed for only 42 audience members at a time in the Playhouse Ladies Bathroom at the Sydney Opera House. The three performers will utilise the entire space from the bathroom sinks and decorative mirrors to the hand dryers and toilet stalls to weave together a story in a setting where women can safely express themselves.
