The Depraved Appetite of Tarrare the Freak

The Depraved Appetite of Tarrare the FreakT0263979138
A monstrous chamber opera for puppets based on the true story of Tarrare the Freak, an 18th Century French revolutionary spy with an insatiable appetite for live cats, amputated limbs and the occasional toddler. Tarrare's grizzly story ends on the autopsy table - a defining moment in medical history.
