Powder Her Face is inspired by the real-life sex scandal that rocked Britain in the early 60’s. Thomas Adès’ 1995 chamber opera plays off the public’s obsession with the tabloid controversy surrounding a series of Polaroid photos of Margaret Campbell, Duchess of Argyll, dubbed the ‘Dirty Duchess.’ Through the prism of Campbell’s life story, Powder Her Face explores the intersection of gender, politics and power.
