Written in the middle of the last century by two enfants terribles of the French art scene, Poulenc and Cocteau, The Human Voice is an uncompromising performance that challenges the audience to play detective in unraveling lies both spoken and unspoken.

This site-specific production will take place inside a hotel room, bringing audiences within inches both physically and emotionally to the performer. A woman waits for the phone to ring. To talk to her ex-lover one more time. This is a tale of love stripped back, the lies we tell to others and ourselves, an unflinching examination of the human condition in 45 minutes of drama you cannot look away from.
The opera will be performed by two of Australasia’s finest sopranos Amanda Atlas and Fiona McAndrew.

This production was first conceived for and produced by Lost and Found Opera in Perth, Australia. Directed by Thomas de Mallet Burgess. Musical director Chris van Tuinen. Elle Fiona McAndrew.

Contains adult themes pertaining to mental illness.

Composed by Francis Poulenc
Libretto by Jean Cocteau
