The Rococo Machine is a birthday opera. It is a tribute to Drottningholms Slottsteater and the craftsmen of the theatre. We sing about the right to happiness and the right to rebel. About loving a house to the verge of one’s heart bursting. And about the irrefutable importance of wandering in a painted forest every once and in while. Long live the theatre!

– Tuvalisa Rangström, libretto
