At Tête à Tête: The Opera Festival 2021 full-time Performance Poet and part-time woman, Alice d’Lumiere, staged a “Spoken Word Overture“. She laid down a challenge to herself; to overcome her deep, childhood inability to sing. Now, after a 24 month intermission, this self-confessed outsider in gender, and 51 year old late-starter in opera, returns to Tête à Tête: The Opera Festival 2023 to reveal if she’s finally able to hold a note.


Themes of vocal identity, gender fluidity and the individual’s need for self-expression are humorously explored by a beguiling communicator in a one hour work in progress; combining prose, verse, comedy, a dash of performance art and yes, perhaps this time some actual singing! Contains original music and possibly some foolhardy attempts at the classical repertoire.


Age Rating: All ages, but mostly adults
