Actress: Tracey Catchpole, Director: Wayne Adrian Drew, Coloratura Soprano: Lisa Cassidy, Pianist: William Fergusson
In this rare opportunity to see a Jean Cocteau double bill, actress Tracey Catchpole and opera singer Lisa Cassidy, accompanied by William Fergusson join the Holt Festival to star in two tour de force performances. The Human Voice is in the first half in English and in the second it returns to its original French as La Voix Humaine, a one act opera by Francis Poulenc.
The scenario of a woman’s phone call to her partner, and a terrible life-changing event is the perfect platform for this compelling exploration of human frailty and love. These two works seen side by side offer a truly arresting and not to be missed experience.
Running time: 1 hour 30 min with interval
