Act 3: Dialogues of the Carmelites

Lyric Opera of Chicago Dramaturge Roger Pines brings us the story behind Francis Poulenc's acclaimed 20th Century opera Dialogues of the Carmelites. It's based on the real life execution of a group of Catholic nuns during the French Revolution. The opera is enjoying it's first-ever series of performances at Lyric Opera of Chicago.

Originally broadcast February 16, 2007, on Eight Forty-Eight.

Then, Jean de St. Aubin then shares her respect for opera as its own medium and what it loses in translation to film.
