Divaria Productions to Present ‘The Human Voice’

By David Salazar

Divaria Productions is set to present “The Human Voice” on Oct. 2 at the Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor, New York.

The opera will be presented in a production by J.A. Diaz with Zalman Kelber as pianist and music director. The famed Poulenc work will star Ashley Bell and James Patrick Nelson as two iterations of Elle.

Bell has appeared with such companies as Townsend Opera, Mississippi Opera, New York City Opera, Sarasota Opera, Mid-Atlantic Opera, Orchestra Filarmonica di Roma, and the Natchez Festival, among others.

The production had its original premiere in 2018 in Logroño, Spain and was then part of the 2019 New York Opera Fest.

This production of “The Human Voice” represents the first live opera performances to take place in the Hamptons in nearly two years.
