Welsh National Opera, heading for national lockdown, have produced a new film of Poulenc’s La Voix Humaine, with Claire Booth. It was shot entirely in Claire’s Oxfordshire home, with her household objects, under social distancing guidelines.

The full video will go online this weekend.

    Opera North’s live Poulenc I went to on Saturday in the Leeds Playhouse was excellent, and simply done. First live opera since February. Obviously not the same as 2013 when they last did it with the remarkable Lesley Garrett, but still very good and a chance to get out into the theatre, all for £12.

  • Peter Chun says:

    This is the PERFECT opera for this approach! The work even sounds great with just piano!
