Based on a text by Jean Cocteau and composed by Francis Poulenc, La Voix Humaine is a 40-minute operatic melodrama for a solo female voice. The story is both raw and brutally honest as it explores the feelings of a woman as she has her final phone conversation with her lover before he leaves her. Despite being composed in 1959, the text sheds light on the kind of false intimacy and solitude that new technology creates.
Soprano Maria Lacey returns to Bare Opera to perform this rare gem with Artistic Director and acclaimed pianist Laetitia Ruccolo. Set in the Lounge of The New Work Project, the audience will have the opportunity to witness, up-close, the real-time unraveling of a woman’s relationship.
Doors will open at 7.30 pm, and the performance will begin around 8pm.
