Summary
Dmitri Tcherniakov stages Francis Poulenc's Dialogues of the Carmelites at the Bayerische Staatsoper Munich, accompanied by the sought-after conductor Kent Nagano. On stage, Susan Gritton sings the role of Blanche de la Force. The Dialogues of the Carmelites is one of the masterpieces of the 20th century. This opera with historical references is also a great reflection on existential themes such as life, death or religion. In 1789, at the beginning of French Revolution, Blanche de la Force is scared about these events and makes the wishes to become a noun, hoping to be safe in the convent. After having explained her choice to the prioress of the monastery, Blanche becomes Sister Blanche of the Agony of Christ and learns to overcome her fear, talking with the Sisters. When the prioress of the monastery dies, the Sisters are condemned to death during the French Revolution. They decide to take a vow of martyrdom. Afterwards, Blanche will choose to resign to die on the scaffold with her Sisters of the convent. The Russian stage director Dmitri Tcherniakov, whose five stagings have been awarded a Golden Mask and who has already staged numerous operas in great Russian halls, chooses to translate Poulenc's opera in a Soviet context, with a scenery deprived of orniamets, as the reflect in a way of some social structures. Under the baton of the acclaimed conductor Kent Nagano, the Orchestra and choir of the Bayerische Staatsoper perform in a highly poetic way Poulenc's opera
