Join us for a preview lecture of Seattle Opera’s upcoming double bill of one-act operas: Poulenc’s "La Voix Humaine" and Puccini’s "Suor Angelica." Description:
Seattle Opera educators will present an hour-long, engaging multimedia lecture that covers the basics of the opera's history, music and stagecraft.
Poulenc’s sensual, captivating 40-minute monodrama depicts a desperate woman, shunned by her lover over the telephone, who stumbles through a minefield of emotions towards an unknown fate.
In "Suor Angelica," Puccini explores the despair and ultimate salvation of a woman forced to give up her illegitimate son and become a nun.
