Two women, two moments, two lives changed forever. THE HUMAN VOICE Music by Francis Poulenc Libretto by Jean Cocteau Elle is alone, motionless in a room, she goes to leave but is stopped by the phone ringing. It is the love of her life. Rather than compassion she is confronted with a truth she finds impossible to accept. Audiences have been wowed by Alexandra Flood’s two sold out recitals and now we present her in full flight. Dynamic conductor Zoe Zeniodi, a rising star in the international music scene, leads a full strength Queensland Symphony Orchestra, with the creative team behind The Marriage of Figaro returning to bring this powerful double bill to life. CAST ALEXANDRA FLOOD The Human Voice is sung in French with English surtitles. THE CALL Concept ALI MCGREGOR based on an original story told by Auburn Sheaffer Composer CONNOR D’NETTO Libretto KATE MILLER-HEIDKE & KEIR NUTTALL A new Australian work, inspired by a remarkable true story about a woman left with nothing but a phone number. She dials, someone answers and so begins a conversation that changes everything.
