La Soupe Pop

A bowl of humanity

Operas | The Tiger Lillies

In a soup kitchen, the recipients take turns mocking and supporting, lying and loving each other, spicing up the reality of their lives with a pinch of fantasy.

Inspired by director Marie-Ève Signeyrole's real-life experience volunteering in a soup kitchen around Christmas, La Soupe Pop invites its audience to share a bowl of soup among the actors and singers on Montpellier's Opera Comédie stage. Halfway between theatre and cabaret, the immersive experience unfolds in a series of raw yet poetic scenes accompanied by the joyously melancholy music of British cult band The Tiger Lillies.

Recorded on 13 December 2016


Sung in French and English. Subtitles are available in English with the option of auto-translation into over 100 other languages.
