T.O.S.C.A. at UofT Opera School

Caught you!  You thought the UofT Opera School was performing Puccini's Tosca this fact, they are doing a night of Poulenc: La Voix Humaine & Les Mamelles de Tirésias.  

Check out the details below:

From the melodic pen of Francis Poulenc come two one-act works of stunning theatrical contrast. La Voix Humaine [The Human Voice] portrays the heart wrenching grief of a woman’s final farewell to her lover while Les Mamelles de Tirésias [The Breasts of Tirésias] brilliantly satirizes feminism, fertility drugs and “family values”.
Sandra Horst conductor
Michael Patrick Albano & Erik Thor directors
