“Je t’aime…Je t’aime…Je t’aime…”
One woman, One telephone. In the middle of her room, a young woman awakes next to her telephone, waiting for a call from her ex-lover. After many wrong numbers, he finally gets through. Over the 40-minute call, Elle delves into their past in search for the truth as we watch her spiral into despair. The connection cuts out, the line between truth and fiction becomes blurred, and a confident woman crumbles as her misery and paranoia overtake her. Based on the play by the same name, Poulenc's powerful one-woman opera La Voix Humaine tells of the importance of human connection, and the fear we all share of being alone.
