La Voix Humaine

La voix humaine (English: The Human Voice) -Directed by David Bridel with musical direction by Mark Robson- is a forty-minute, one-act opera for soprano composed by Francis Poulenc in 1958. The work is based on the play of the same name by Jean Cocteau, who, along with French soprano Denise Duval, worked closely with Poulenc in preparation for the opera’s premiere. Poulenc’s tragédie lyrique was first performed at the Théâtre National de l’Opéra-Comique in Paris on 6 February 1959, with Duval singing the female role and Georges Prêtre conducting the orchestra, and with scenery, costumes, and direction by Cocteau. The libretto consists of a woman's last phone conversation with her lover, who now loves someone else. During the call, the woman reveals that she has attempted suicide because her lover has abandoned her.

Casa Classic

 

An evening of opera and musical theater with pianist Mark Robson.

Soprano Amanda Squitieri has been praised for her “warm soprano” voice, “bright, ripe” sound (Opera News), as well as her engaging stage presence and versatility that makes her “one of the most engaging singers of the younger generation” (Opera News).

Amanda created the role of Beatrice Russo in Daniel Catan’s ‘Il Postino’ in the world premiere performances at Los Angeles Opera. She has subsequently debuted this piece at Theater An der Wien, Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris, the Festival Internacional Cervantino in Mexico and Teatro Municipal in Santiago . The Opera was seen on PBS Great Performances and released on DVD. Both critics and audiences have praised her performance in this role with the Associated Press stating, “Soprano Amanda Squitieri sang Beatrice, moving gracefully across the stage and pairing it with a compelling voice in a manner few singers do.”

What Makes It Great? with Rob Kapilow

From Brigadoon to My Fair Lady: The Songs of Lerner and Loewe With Amanda Squitieri, soprano.  Rob Kapilow “gets audiences in tune with Classical music at a deeper and more immediate level than many of them thought possible,” hails the Los Angeles Times. In a three-part format, Kapilow dissects a musical composition. The pieces are performed, and a lively Q&A concludes the evening. “You hang on to every word and note,” says The New York Times.
