Chamber Pot Opera tells the story of three women who meet for the first time in a public bathroom. 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 26 audience members at a time in the elaborate but cosy Romanesque public Ladies’ Powder Room on Level 2 of the majestic QVB. The three performers will utilise the entirety of the splendid and intimate 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.
