About Compulsive Opera

An experimental opera, offering a glimpse into the life and desires of an introverted queer classical musician with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, an Eating Disorder, a drumkit, and a wardrobe of historical costumes. A musical portrait of an underdog and rebel surviving outside of mainstream society, Compulsive Opera transports us into the mind of Katherine Christie Evans as she fantasises about being a queer time-travelling troubadour. She dreams one minute of being John Dowland, charming ladies with her mastery of the lute and her Elizabethan ruff, and next of starring in retro cult-classic film ‘Xanadu’ alongside Olivia Newton-John; all accomplished while riding exercise equipment or transitioning between a range of live instruments and outfits.
