Jeunesses Musicales Canada- Opéras La voix humaine & Histoires naturelles

November 5 @ 7:30 pm - Théâtre Capitol Theatre

Two operas presented by the country’s top young lyrical talents: La voix humaine, by Poulenc preceded by a menagerie of French mélodies, including Ravel’s Histoires naturelles.

This double-bill animal comedy gives way to human tragedy; Poulenc’s La voix humaine takes on an almost veristic meaning as a broken relationship is woven through the mundane language of a telephone conversation. In this distressful monologue, a woman attempts to speak to her lover over the phone, slowly laying bare her sadness and pain at being abandoned.

In the first half, a singer performs a selection of French mélodies centred on animals, its levity juxtaposed against the lyrical tragedy of the second half. In this way, Ravel’s cycle of Histoires naturelles and other songs are brought into harmony with Poulenc’s La voix humaine in a rich, daring, and contrasting vocal concert.
