Join Vespertine Opera Theater in its daring and intimate production of Francis Poulenc’s gripping psychodrama, La Voix Humaine, performed in English. In this one-act, one-woman show, a young lady has a telephone conversation with her ex-lover, over the course of which she becomes increasingly destitute, spiraling eventually into a deep psychosis. Accompanied by Francis Poulenc’s at once lavish and brutal music, famed poet, filmmaker, and artist Jean Cocteau’s story comes to vivid life. Experience this rarely performed opera in a fiercely intimate and personal setting, with only two performances!
