Opera Holland Park returned to the Royal Albert Hall for this extraordinary one-act opera by Francis Poulenc, composer of Dialogues des Carmelites.
La voix humaine features a woman’s final telephone conversation with a lover who has abandoned her. She talks of suicide and loss and the opera has an anxious beauty to it that makes it utterly compelling. Her ultimate fate is shrouded in mystery but we travel the painful journey with her.
With an introductory talk by Mark Valencia
