Live at the Met:  Dialogues des Carmelites

May 11, at 12:00pm

Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin leads the classic John Dexter production of Francis Poulenc’s devastating story of faith and martyrdom.  Mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard sings the touching role of Blanche and soprano Karita Mattila, a legend in her own time, returns to the Met as the Prioress.  One of the most successful operas of the later decades of the 20th century, Dialogues des Carmélites is a rare case of a modern work that is equally esteemed by audiences and experts.  Its historical basis is the martyrdom of a group of 16 Carmelite nuns and lay sisters from Compiègne, who chose to offer themselves as victims for the restoration of peace to France during the Revolution.
