Les dialogue des Carmélites is one of those titles that have made twentieth-century opera great. Composed by Francis Poulenc in 1957 for the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, the opera is drawn from a Georges Bernanos text by the same title (1949). Listening to it means to lighten the impact of many clichés.
