The Telephone and La voix humaine (The Human Voice) tell very different stories; one is a charming romantic comedy and the other a gripping drama. However, they both explore the effects of technology in our lives and the importance of human connection.

Both operas will be directed by Winnipegger Jacqueline Loewen in her MO directing debut and conducted by Naomi Woo, Assistant Conductor, Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, also in her MO debut.

These semi-staged works will feature the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra on stage.
