Whisper Opera - ICE at Toronto Soundstreams

This one-of-a-kind work is performed with the musicians, singer, and audience enclosed in an intimate onstage set at The Theatre Center. Scored for soprano, flute, clarinet, percussion, and cello, the libretto of The Whisper Opera is performed almost entirely in whispers, audible thanks to director Jim Findlay’s innovative design. As he developed the work, David Lang wondered: “what if a piece were so quiet and so personal to the performers that you needed to be right next them or you would hear almost nothing? A piece like this would have to be experienced live. The only way this piece can be received is if you are there, listening very very closely.”
