Evangeline Athanasiou, a musicology graduate student, and a panel of social and religious scholars from across campus explore the complex issue of religious persecution as framed in Poulenc’s Dialogues of the Carmelites. Premiered in 1957, Poulenc’s post-WW II opera tells of the martyrdom suffered by a group of Carmelite nuns by French revolutionary authorities in 1794. The discussion will focus on how themes of these historical events continue to resonate today.

Free, no tickets required.
