Have a Good Day!

Operomanija

Lithuania

A mechanical opera played by ten cashiers, that's probably the best description of Have a nice day. The décor full of cold light and the continuous bleeps of scanned products make you hyperconscious of the robot-like working conditions of the anonymous women you meet every day behind the till. But hidden behind the superficial hellos and the forced smiles there are individuals with a personality of their own. The secret thoughts and lost dreams of these women have been worked into the music score. Although this supermarket opera contains a lot of criticism about capitalism and our continuous urge to consume, it is very witty, ironical and poetical. The New York Times thought the performance “intelligent, charming and considerably subversive”.
