Boys of Paradise

boys of paradise, egg ldn 2016

Music: Vahan Salorian
Words: Dominic Kimberlin

Welcome to Paradaezia! The best and most debaucherous of clubs, where all the brightest of boys of paradise come to while away their nights in pleasure. A trio of friends – Twink, Cub and Fag Hag – discover its dizzying highs. But as Twink is led astray, may he also be about to discover the lows?

In this contemporary retelling of the phoenix myth, workshOPERA invite you to join them for a neurotic, erotic, psychotic, immersive operatic experience.
