One of the most heartbreaking works ever composed about the end of love and the desperation of abandonment, Francis Poulenc’s one-act opera, based on Cocteau’s La voix humaine, will be presented for the first time at the Little Theatre of Ancient Epidaurus, in a bold directorial concept by Maria Panourgia. Five dancers/actors, each of them shut up inside his or her own telephone box, round up a cast led by soprano Myrsini Margariti, as fellow passengers throughout the heroine’s anguish and dreams. The set design will reflect the heroines’ emotional ups and downs to the sounds of Maria Papapetropoulou’s piano.
