The Depraved Appetite of Tarrare the Freak
A Chamber Opera for Puppets

Three stories about love, loss and letting go. Created in collaboration with T S Eliot award-winning poet Philip Gross and with an original score featuring a 4-piece jazz combo, Triptych fuses innovative storytelling with a distinctive combination of visual theatre, puppetry and masks.
