Poulenc: La Voix Humaine & Les Mamelles de Tirésias

Sandra Horst, conductor
Michael Patrick Albano & Erik Thor, directors
From the melodic pen of Francis Poulenc come two one-act works of stunning theatrical contrast. La Voix Humaine [The Human Voice] portrays the heart wrenching grief of a woman’s final farewell to her lover while Les Mamelles de Tirésias [The Breasts of Tirésias] brilliantly satirizes feminism, fertility drugs and “family values”.
A pre-performance opera chat will be given 30 minutes prior to each performance in room 130
