Win two tickets to see UBC Opera’s Dialogues des Carmélites at the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts
About the opera: 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. Poulenc’s libretto is based on a play by Georges Bernanos which itself was based on Gertrud von Le Fort’s novel Die Letzte am Schafott.
Dialogues des Carmélites runs from February 7 to 10 at the UBC Old Auditorium.
A pair of premium tickets to Dialogues des Carmélites for any performance (February 7 to 10) at the UBC Old Auditorium.
