About the film

Against the backdrop of the French Revolution, shy and insecure Blanche remains as a novice nun even as her family flees the Reign of Terror, torn between her duty to her convent and fear of the guillotine.
Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin leads an accomplished ensemble in Poulenc’s devastating modern masterpiece of faith and martyrdom. Isabel Leonard is the young Blanche de La Force, opposite Met legend Karita Mattila as the First Prioress.

“A glowing, grippingly volatile performance.” – New York Times (Critic’s Pick)
“Riveting, devastating… rich with ravishing music.” – New York Classical Review
