UKTW - 25 years online
CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.

About the Show/Event

Information for La Voix Humaine at Leeds Playhouse (formerly West Yorkshire Playhouse), Leeds (Opera or Operetta). La voix humaine is a dialogue, but one in which the audience only ever hears one voice, as a woman and her lover agree to part during a single telephone conversation. Poulenc, in his most famous operatic work, creates a master piece out of the woman's growing realisation that it is all over, combined with her darkly comic frustrations with the telephone as a means of communication. While the central character of this piece is on the receiving end of a highly charged emotional break-up, she is neither passive nor pliant. While the man may have the upper hand in the romance, the strength of character, humanity and humour is definitely with the woman. Barber Studio. Part of Connecting Voices
Approximate runtime 40minutes (including any interval).
Performers Gillene Butterfield.
Music Francis Poulenc. Lyrics Jean Cocteau. Producer Leeds Playhouse. Producer Opera North. Director Sameena Hussain.
