Opera: Dialogues des Carmélites


Location: Decio Mainstage Theatre, DeBartolo Performing Arts Center

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.

Ticket prices are $19 (general admission), $14 (senior citizens), and $7 (students/children).
