Opera Notre Dame presents Francis Poulenc’s Dialogues des Carmélites.
The outbreak of the French Revolution led to wholly unexpected manifestations of hatred for the Christian faith. During the space of a few months, veritable throngs of priests and religious were led to the guillotine and executed. Among the victims were 16 Carmelites belonging to a convent in Compiegne which had enjoyed special favors under the old regime. The present story is based upon their history… Dialogue or vocals in a foreign language.
This opera will be performed with a cast of more than 50, in the original French with projected English translation.
