Notes & Reviews:

This is a BLU-RAY disc and it will not play on a standard DVD player. A standard DVD is available as AHM 101493. The opera 'Dialogues of the Carmelites' is the only opera the French composer Francis Poulenc ever wrote. It is based on the screenplay 'Diebegnadigte Angst' by Georges Bernanos. The material for the opera is based on actual historic events. This production showcases big, vibrant voices from all age categories who are not only brilliant in singing but also in acting. Besides the great musical performance, the main reason for the huge success of the opera is stage director Nikolaus Lehnhoff. His simplistic stage design together with the mystic light installation ensures that this opera provides great listening and also an amazing viewing pleasure.
