Chamber Music Series | FREE
Wednesday, September 10 | 7 pm
Experience the harmonious convergence of music and art as students from the University of Utah School of Music perform an original opera in the galleries of the UMFA. In this special addition to our Chamber Music Series, University of Utah School of Music soprano Olivia Custodio will perform the short opera La voix humaine, by Francis Poulenc, with Jed Moss accompanying on piano. The story follows a woman as she speaks on the telephone with her (invisible and inaudible) departing lover, who is leaving her to marry another woman. The telephone proved to be the perfect prop for librettist Jean Cocteau to explore his ideas, feelings, and "algebra" concerning human needs and realities in communication. Directed by Lucas Goodrich.
