From Upbeat, 1:25 pm on 1 March 2017

Opera and cake, what could possibly go wrong? That is the basis of Dunedin singer Claire Barton’s latest show Bon Appétit! Inspired by television chef Julia Childs, Claire whips, beats and bakes live on stage, and if it doesn’t rise some added ingredients are at hand. It’s part of a double bill with Haydn’s short comic opera La Canterina (The young diva).
