 Black by Le Gateau Chocolat

One of the most life-affirming, inventive and beautiful shows.’ The List

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.’ Maya Angelou

Featuring a repertoire ranging from Wagner and Purcell to Nina Simone and Whitney Houston, Black is an intimate and confessional portrait of Nigerian singer Le Gateau Chocolat’s life: his hopes, his fears and his battle with depression.

This is a new version of the critically-acclaimed show re-staged with the Psappha New Music Ensemble.
