Hotfoot from his worldwide mission (Sydney Opera House/Carnegie Hall) to spread operatic joy and pain, Richard Thomas (Jerry Springer The Opera/ BBC Kombat Operas ) is released for one night only from his gimp box to plumb the shallows of his cavernous X-rated song cycle, “1001 Songs About Anything”. Glad to oblige, ready to annoy.
Music and Words: Richard Thomas
Consort Spinnet: Richard Thomas
