Odyssey Opera - Arther Honegger's Jeanne d'Arc au Bûcher

  • Sanders Theater 45 Quincy Street Cambridge, MA, 02138 United States (map)

Arthur Honegger's Jeanne d’Arc au Bûcher (Joan of Arc at the Stake) is a large-scale dramatic production and, undoubtedly, the French-born Swiss composer’s most famous work. It has recently enjoyed renewed international interest thanks to global productions featuring popular French actress Marion Cotillard. The drama takes place during the heroine’s last minutes on the stake, with flashbacks to her trial and younger days. Honegger entitled his work a "dramatic oratorio", adding speaking roles and actors. The work is a dramatic mix of Honegger’s eclectic score, and sung and spoken libretto by poet and playwright Paul Claudel. Odyssey Opera’s performance will feature the voices of the Harvard-Radcliffe Collegium Musicum.
