Losing Her Voice
Losing Her Voice brings to life in music and film the story of the early 20th-century American opera diva Geraldine Farrar who became a silent film star and performed Carmen silently in an acclaimed 1915 Cecil B. Demille film. Alongside celebrating Farrar’s achievements, the opera explores ideas surrounding the cult of celebrity and the impact of social media.
