A woman is on the phone to her lover who is ending their relationship. Her devastation unfolds before our eyes as we, the audience, eavesdrop on her despair in the confines of her home.
Taking place in an apartment in Bath, Director Sir David Pountney has taken a 20th century opera classic and created an intense theatrical experience. La voix humaine is opera up-close, intimate and unrestrained.
