Seattle Opera "La Voix Humaine" with Nuccia Focile by Seattle Opera published on 2013/05/05 17:35:59 +0000 Nuccia Focile performs Poulenc's monodrama "La Voix Humaine" at Seattle Opera through May 18. This one-woman tour de force concerns a woman's final phone call with her lover of five years--she tries to stay connected with him, flirts with him, lies to him, and ultimately bares her soul and finds the courage to say goodbye. In this passage she confesses having overdosed on sleeping pills in an attempt to free herself from the nightmare of being alone. Sung by Nuccia Focile.
