Le Gateau Chocolat has a story to tell…

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.

The cabaret legend has performed on major stages all over the world, including Sydney Opera House, Menier Chocolate Factory, Royal Opera House, and Glyndebourne Opera as well as giving show-stopping performances at La Clique and La Soiree.

Black was originally commissioned by homotopia and created with funding from Arts Council England and support from Pink Fringe, Nightingale Theatre, and Colchester Arts Centre
