La Voix Humaine & Suor Angelica

Presented by Seattle Opera

by Francis Poulenc / Giacomo Puccini

In this exciting pair of Seattle Opera premieres, two very different composers explore the fates of women who must come to grips with grave disappointment. In Poulenc’s sensual, captivating 40-minute monodrama, a desperate woman is shunned by her lover over the telephone and stumbles through a minefield of emotions towards an unknown fate. In Puccini’s sentimental one act, a noble-born woman who has joined a convent is disowned by her family, takes poison in despair, and miraculously passes into a state of grace.
