Dialogues of the Carmelites - CCM

Based on a true story, this haunting opera tells the tale of the Carmelite Nuns, a small order put to death during the French Revolution. The fictional Parisian aristocrat Blanche de la Force attempts to find refuge with the nuns, setting the stage for a psychological study of devotion in the face of terror. Sung in French with English supertitles.
Music and Libretto by Francis Poulenc. Libretto by Emmet Lavery. Based on the novel by French writer Georges Bernanos.
Estimated runtime: 3 hours and 6 minutes with intermission. Listen to the recording on Spotify.
