The shittiest opera ever written

The veteran Belgian composer Philippe Boesmans, 83, is writing yet another opera for La Monnaie.

Titled On purge bébé, and adapted from a Feydeau farce, the plot revolves around a seven year-old child with constipation and its refusal to accept a purgative.

Premiere in 2022. Don’t all run at once.

We are indebted for this item of light relief to the indisensable forumopera site…

… and for the illustration to the incontinent city of Vienna
