Dialogues des carmélites Synopsis

By February 23, 2013

Follow me on:

Focused on a young French aristocrat maiden during the French Revolutionary War, Blanche spends the entire opera fearful for her life.  Hoping to escape a dark fate, she joins a convent and lives a new life as a nun.  With a very moving finale, Francis Poulenc's second opera can send chills down your spine.  Watch a YouTube clip of the finale, but make sure you read the Dialogues des carmélites Synopsis first in case you're not familiar with the opera.
