Lakme Takes Flight

Sheila James and Melina Young

2000, 11:49 minutes, colour, English/French

TAPECODE 680.02

A cheeky and beautiful musical subversion of "Sous le Dome Epais" of the "flower duet" by Leo Delibes. This short critiques European opera's reliance on 'the orient' for exotic flavour. A lesbian remake featuring 'actual' south asian women (Veena Sood and Andeep Singh) in the contemporized roles of Brahmin Princess Lakme and her amid servant Mallika. A la romantic Bollywood, naturellement.
