La voix humaine (English: The Human Voice) is a forty-minute, one-act opera for soprano and orchestra composed by Francis Poulenc in 1958. The work is based on the play of the same name by Jean Cocteau, who, along with French soprano Denise Duval, worked closely with Poulenc in preparation for the opera's premiere.

Francis Poulenc composed this operatic monologue for Denise Duval, his favourite singer, who created the role under the direction of Georges Prêtre, with staging and scenery by Jean Cocteau, who also wrote the libretto. Putting to music his friend Cocteau’s monodrama, in which the telephone becomes the main character in a sentimental drama, was an extraordinary tour de force for the composer.

In Jean Cocteau’s monodrama La Voix humaine, which Francis Poulenc set to music as an intense tragédie-lyrique, a woman phones her former lover for the last time, the day before he marries another woman. In this piece, Cocteau’s theme of human loneliness and fear assumes a tragic dimension: the dialogue becomes a monologue; all communication turns out to be an illusion.
