Powder Her Face

Music by Thomas Adès
Libretto by Philip Hensher

Synopsis Summary

The upper crust of Britain was rocked by Margaret, Duchess of Argyll’s very public divorce in 1963. Salacious photos and outrageous tales of the Dirty Duchess’ lurid trysts with famous partners headlined all the tabloids. Powder is an intimate look into the last days of a misunderstood and scandalous socialite whose life may not have been all it seemed from the surface.

Advisory: Powder Her Face includes explicit language and sexual subject matter. For Mature Audiences only.
