Unknowing / The Telephone


Produced and presented by Teatime Opera

Hosted by The Cockpit

Can we ever really know the person we think we love? Unknowing plots the turbulent, intense and violent relationship between two lovers. Using the music of Schumann’s Dichterliebe and Fraulieben und leben, in a new translation by celebrated conductor David Parry, the piece is a poetic meditation on love’s creative and destructive power. Partnering Unknowing is Menotti's The Telephone, a comedy of failed communication. Ben tries to get a word in edgeways but Lucy keeps on being called away... will he ever manage to propose?
