MetOpera: Dialogues des Carmélites
John Dexter's production of Francis Poulenc's opera from the Met's 2018-2019 season of live performances, captured in HD on the New York stage.
"The opera focuses on a young member of an order of Carmelite nuns, the aristocratic Blanche de la Force, who must overcome a pathological timidity in order to answer her life’s calling. The score reflects key aspects of its composer’s personality: Francis Poulenc was an urbane Parisian with a profound mystical dimension, and the opera addresses both the characters’ internal lives and their external realities."
