Mark Wanich performs the Marquis de la Force in Dialogues des Carmelites.

Premiered in 1957, Poulenc's opera explores religious devotion and self-sacrifice through the story of Blanche de la Force, a young aristocratic woman who joins the Carmelite Order to escape the violence of the French Revolution's Reign of Terror.
