A brilliantly moving and tragic French opera, Dialogues des Carmélites is based on historical events that took place at a monastery of Carmelite nuns during the French Revolution.

Filled with lush harmonies characteristic of Poulenc’s style, the opera shows the resolute determination and emotional plight of the Carmelite nuns whose faith is put to the ultimate test.

UBC Opera welcomes internationally acclaimed artists, mezzo-soprano Judith Forst, and conductor David Agler, in its presentation of this French masterpiece.
