'La Voix humaine' and Other Voices - Music Town 2017
Sat 8 April 2017, 20:00 – 21:45 IST
A fully staged production of Francis Poulenc's one-performer opera La Voix humaine comes to Music Town Dublin 2017, in an evening combining classical music performance and digital arts.
The production is part of Francesca Placanica's artistic research project 'En-Gendering Monodrama', hosted at Maynooth University and supported by the Irish Research Council. Our production of La Voix humaine, for soprano, piano and digital sets contextualizes female sensibilities across visual arts and music throughout the twentieth-century, as imagined by Cocteau and Poulenc and embodied by their first muse Denise Duval.
The second half of the evening will feature a lively selection of cabaret-style and musical theatre pieces by Benjamin Britten, Georger Gershwin and Cole Porter.
