Francis Poulenc

Dialogues des Carmélites

Introduction at 4.20 pm

With his "Dialogues des Carmélites", premiered in Milan in 1957, the French composer Francis Poulenc switched sides. At first it seems only a step behind the walls of the cloister: the noise of the world is heard only dimly here, and outside events are reflected merely in “conversations of the Carmelite nuns”. However, this also entails a change of perspective: Poulenc does not give us a grand historical tableau, preferring to describe the events as the moving story of his main protagonist Blanche. In doing so, he asks her, and the audience, the existential question: what do we do when the world around us comes unhinged?
