An Old Baritone.

Performance commissioned by the 1800’s Festival in Saludecio.
Based on work by the French illustrator and painter Daumier.
… long hands in finger-less gloves, slippers, embroidered housecoat – pocket watch and chain – champagne bottle in one pocket & sheet music in the other.

A very odd performance:
executing melodramatic arias with full facial and physical expression but with no vocal noise and in slow motion – accompanied by soundtrack of Edwardian musical boxes.
