Philippe Agostini and Raymond Leopold Bruckberger's Dialogue des Carmélites (1960)

Above, in its entirety, Le dialogue des Carmélites (1960), to accompany another report on the staging of an opera of the same name — Poulenc’s opera on Seoul stage.

"The French Revolution is the backdrop of the Korea National Opera’s production of 'Dialogues of the Carmelites,' a fictionalized retelling of the story of the Martyrs of Compiegne, 16 nuns who were guillotined amidst the political and religious strife in the country," the article reminds us. "The opera by Francis Poulenc is based on a screenplay by Georges Bernanos, which was itself based on the novella 'The Last on the Scaffold' by German writer Gertrud von Le Fort."
