Breaking up is hard to do in Francis Poulenc’s rarely performed opera, The Human Voice (La Voix Humaine), based on Jean Cocteau’s play. Guest artist Malinda Haslett draws us into the world of a woman who surrenders to love and refuses to let it die. To begin the evening, we explore Poulenc’s formative years and hear some of Cocteau’s poems set to music by Poulenc and friends.

Francis Poulenc was a prominent artist of the early 20th century, part of the thriving art and music scene in Paris. He associated with luminaries like Jean Cocteau, André Breton, Guillaume Apollinaire, Erik Satie, and others who were fundamental to creating modern art as we know it. 

There will be two performances: October 12 and 13 at 7:30 p.m.

This event is hosted by PSU's School of Music + Theater.
