Constipation is no joke!
After Au monde and Pinocchio, the most productive opera composer in the Western hemisphere was determined to write a more light-hearted opera. He found inspiration in French vaudeville writer Georges Feydeau, whose On purge bébé (1910) he set about condensing into an opera libretto together with director Richard Brunel. Monsieur, Madame and their tyrannical, constipated son Toto live through a mad day during which chamber pots are sent flying through the air. But it is not only the china that is smashed to pieces in this burlesque nightmare. The petit bourgeois façade also crumbles … Bonne merde!
