Poulenc's important opera takes on ideas of religion and nationality in France. The story of pious, extremely loyal nuns who would rather be killed than renounce their faith in God, Dialogues of the Carmelites is moving and tragic. This production, staged at the Opera Australia, is given life by an astounding Joan Sutherland and the assured conducting of Richard Bonynge.
