JMC's 75th Anniversary7:30 p.m.

In this double bill, where comedy yields to human drama, Poulenc’s La voix humaine assumes an almost veristic quality of its own, as a breakup unfolds through the trivialities of a telephone conversation. The first half features a singer performing a selection of French mélodies, contrasting lightnesswith the lyrical tragedy of the second half.

A coproduction with the Festival d’opéra de Québec
