The Bob Cole Conservatory Opera Institute presents French composer Francis Poulenc’s Dialogues of the Carmelites. This opera, performed on April 12-14, 2019 at the CSULB University Theatre, will be sung in French and have English subtitles.

Francis Poulenc’s Dialogues of the Carmelites is set during the final days of the Reign of Terror in Paris, France. The story tells the fictionalized account of an order of Carmelite nuns who were martyred for their beliefs during the French Revolution.

Poulenc is known for his mastery of beautiful French melodies. Dialogues of the Carmelites first appeared at La Scala opera house in 1957.

Stage director Eli Villanueva of LA Opera returns after his successful Opera Institute productions of Chérubin and Candide. David Anglin, Opera Institute Director, will conduct this fully-staged performance.
