NEC Opera Studies Department
NEC's Opera Studies Department is pleased to present Francis Poulenc's one act opera, La voix humaine.
Based on the play by Jean Cocteau, La voix humaine is the story of a desperate woman on the phone with the man who has just abandoned her. The telephone becomes her last means of connection as she wavers between reverie and frenzy, rage and tenderness, trying to hold onto him.
Soprano Elaine Daiber '21 AD performs the role, accompanied by pianist J.J. Penna.
