Richard Strauss and Poulenc with Barbara Hannigan

Maison symphonique February 21 and 22, 2024

After her triumphant performance in 2022, Barbara Hannigan returns to the Maison symphonique in the dual role of singer and conductor. In this unusually structured concert, she will give the first North American performance of her own staged production of Poulenc’s monodrama La voix humaine, showcasing the full intensity of her dramatic artistry. She will also conduct Richard Strauss’ Metamorphosen, a powerfully expressive and introspective work.
