Le Gateau Chocolat10.30 Le Gateau Chocolat

Le Gateau Chocolat is a self-described opera-singing diva with a velvety baritone, a passion for laughter and a penchant for lycra. After growing up in Nigeria and attending law school in the UK, life took a very different path for Le Gateau, after the first time he performed at a local club in drag. He now travels the world with an operatic show that challenges ideas around gender, size, race, and sexuality. Le Gateau is bringing his show I Heart Chocolat to Christchurch for the World Buskers Festival.

Le Gateau Chocolat performs I Dreamed a Dream, from Les Miserables.
