Debussy, Poulenc, and French Opera in the 20th Century
Presented by Naomi Barrettara

When Debussy’s Pelléas et Mélisande had its world premiere, audience reactions were contentiously mixed. More than 50 years later, Poulenc would describe his Dialogues des Carmélites as being influenced by Monteverdi, Verdi, Wagner, and Debussy. In this last session, we examine the musical, cultural, and social histories of these two works, as well as the threads of influence that connect them.

This course has four sessions. To purchase all sessions of Opera Boot Camp: Introduction to French Opera, please click here.

This session will be held in the Opera Learning Center, located on the 6th Floor of the Samuel B. and David Rose Building at Lincoln Center, 65th Street between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue. For questions, please call the LCE Ticket Line at 212-769-7028, Monday-Friday 10am-4pm.
