You’re in a hotel room. In front of you, a woman waits for the phone to ring so she can talk to her ex-lover one more time.
The NZ Opera performance of The Human Voice takes place entirely within this hotel room, an intense drama with the audience just inches away from the performers. Written in the middle of the last century, The Human Voice is an unflinching examination of the human condition. The intimacy of the setting challenges the audience to play detective, unravelling lies both spoken and unspoken. It’s a unique and unpredictable opera the likes of which you may never have seen before.
