Ne Quittez Pas: A Reimagined La voix humaine

Opera Philadelphia presents Ne Quittez Pas: A Reimagined La voix humaine. The libretto of François Poulenc’s one-act opera, adapted by Jean Cocteau from his play of the same name, is one side of a telephone conversation between a woman and her former lover. In this production, the audience meets le jeune homme in question during the first half of the program, in which he takes the stage to sing a selection of French art and cabaret songs. Starring Edward Nelson and Patricia Racette; James Darrah directs.
