There is a box.
You have no idea what it might contain and whether or not you will it to, the only certainty is that it will open. What mysteries abound? What contaminants, what affliction, what trauma? What might we mortals do with this coil, who are we forced to become?
Part song cycle, part theatre, international icon of stage and song Le Gateau Chocolat has been brewing something daring, something delicious, something dark: PANDORA.
Le Gateau Chocolat is a one-man musical phenomenon, complete with larger-than-life vocal talent. For PANDORA he is joined live on stage by the Manchester Camerata.
Global domination awaits
