  • Year: 2001
  • Duration: 12:00
  • A cheeky and beautiful musical subversion of "Sous le Dome Epais" or "the flower duet" from the opera Lakme 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 maid servant Mallika. A la romantic Bollywood, naturellement.
