Soap Opera or The Kinks Present a Soap Opera is a 1975 concept album by The Kinks. It is the thirteenth studio album by The Kinks. The material was initially developed for a Granada TV live teleplay in 1974, which was broadcast under the title Star Maker, starring Ray Davies and June Ritchie as the leads, with the Kinks providing live accompaniment. A Soap Opera adapted the same songs and plot to an audio presentation, with Ritchie in the same role

If there ever were a testament to Ray Davies' stubbornness and ornery perversity, it's Soap Opera. Released after the draining, two-part, hopelessly muddled rock opera Preservation, Soap Opera is the grandest concept album the Kinks ever made. Davies' tackled a topic that seemed manageable compared to Preservation - how "Ordinary People" escape the doldrums with dreams of stardoms - but conceived the production as a bit of a radio play, with prominent guest vocalists and narration.

Soap Opera, released on May 16, 1975, found Davies near the tail end of this theatrical phase – not that the egregious layers of horns, strings and backing vocalists would have given listeners any clue that Ray was just about done with this sort of thing. After completing the TV play, Davies translated the music into a full-on Kinks album – although some band members would still claim that it was always more of a solo project than a band effort. That fact is borne out in the music, which is more indebted to ostentatious cabaret than the Kinks' roots in rock ’n’ roll. A few songs have a bit more Kinks-y drive (especially leadoff glam-rocker Everybody’s a Star ), but more often the listener is subject to the ups-and-downs of a day for Norman and Andrea (played again by Ritchie).
