Get ready for a “devastating modern masterpiece” as Metropolitan Opera director Yannick Nézet-Séguin leads an accomplished ensemble in Dialogues des Carmélites, Francis Poulenc’s composition on faith and martyrdom. Streamed from a live Met performance to a Cineplex Laval screen on May 11, the 3½-hour opera tells the tale of the young Blanche de La Force played by Isabel Leonard opposite Met legend Karita Mattila as the First Prioress. In French with English subtitles.
