DIALOGUES OF THE CARMELITES BY FRANCIS POULENC
Francis Poulenc brings to the stage the true story of Carmelite nuns caught in the crossfire of the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. Based on a historic novella by Gertude von Le Fort which had been set to dialogue by Georges Bernanos, this work explores dimensions of mortal fear and spiritual redemption. This beautiful opera poses thought-provoking questions about the role of faith, sacrifice and violence as a way to bring about change.
