Carmela Marner and Barbara Paterson speak with WSKG’s Bill Snyder about Francis Poulenc’s one-woman opera which opens the Franklin Stage season. Poulenc based the opera on a play by Jean Cocteau, and worked closely with Cocteau and the soprano Denise Duval while composing it.  It depicts the last conversation a woman has with her lover, who now loves someone else.
