Welcome! This companion site to the Lyric Opera's performance of Poulenc's opera was created by the students in Dr. Elizabeth Craft's Opera Literature class (MUSC 6680/7680, Spring 2019). Topics presented convey information about the Dialogues' origins and adaptation; historical context; and production history. A resource for further reading is also included.
