Win tickets to see RNCM Opera’s production of Poulenc’s Dialogues des Carmélites
Win tickets to see RNCM Opera’s production of Poulenc’s Dialogues des Carmélites.
Then RNCM has teamed up with Northern Soul to offer five readers the chance to win a pair of tickets to Poulenc’s Dialogues des Carmélites on Wednesday 11 December at 7.30pm.
Terror, turbulence and violence provides the backdrop for this powerful opera of faith, bravery and redemption. Blanche de la Force, the timid daughter of an aristocrat, joins the Carmelite order of nuns against the wishes of her family. Whilst living at the convent she befriends one of the young nuns, Constance, who shares a shocking prophecy…
Orpha Phelan’s brand-new production, with its starkly beautiful staging, combines modern and minimalist set designs with intense, atmospheric lighting. While the French Revolution is the monster outside the door, this work is really about the women, their fears, their faith and their relationships with each other. This production will be sung in French with surtitles.
For your chance of winning a pair of tickets, sign up to the Northern Soul newsletter (details of how to do this are on the right-hand side of the page) and send an email to email@example.com with the title ‘RNCM Opera’.

@Amy_Fleur_Stone @LaingArtGallery @BBCFOUR Oh, there is so much here. On the surface a poem by Keats but actually Keats was referring/stealing verse much, much older. And then the painter and his muse - she died during the painting. So all the classic themes of Isabella were mirrored in the painter's tragedy.
