Come visit The Fruit Bowl, and step into an operatic experience like no other. 


Old friends Kiwi & Lime sit together, slowly decaying in the fruit bowl of a bar as a party unwinds around them. Featuring on-stage jazz trio, scent design, and custom drinks to match the performance, Fruit Bowl is a full sensory experience for fans of absurdism, gin, and a little 1920s glamour.

Contemporary opera, shaken, stirred and served with a twist…. of ennui.
