Pandora is conceived by and starring leading drag and contemporary opera performer Le Gateau Chocolat, and will be their biggest solo show to date. They will be accompanied by a 15 piece orchestra from Manchester Camerata, with a score sampling textures from the classical and operatic world, original compositions and the world’s biggest pop stars. 

The legend of Pandora comes from Greek mythology; the story of the first woman on earth whose act of opening a forbidden box results in the unleashing of all the world’s evils, leaving behind only the small but bright glimmer of hope. 

Through the show Le Gateau Chocolat uses this fable as a metaphor for the loss of innocence and the perceived contamination of our identities through an unleashing of traumas that force us to evolve, adapt or be destroyed – something the artist has experienced first-hand.
