Dialogues of the CarmelitesDialogues of the Carmelites

A timid Carmelite novice, who entered the convent seeking refuge from fear, comes face to face with a revolution screaming for blood. How does courage surface from the depths of terror? Come hear it—come feel it—in Poulenc’s masterpiece!

February 7–10, fully staged opera production conducted by Stephen Lord and directed by Steven Goldstein.
