January 2012 marks the 600th anniversary of the birth of heroine, soldier and martyr Joan of Arc. Amongst the many theatrical,
musical and film depictions of her remarkable life story, none is more powerful than the 1935 masterpiece by the Swiss composer,
Arthur Honegger. Exploring her final moments as she enters into a dialogue with her confessor, this sweeping oratorio examines
her life in flashbacks, including the heresy trials before she achieves peace with God at the stake. This exciting concert
features the combined forces of actors, vocalists, chorus and orchestra. An event not to be missed! Catch this special program
before the BSO takes it to Carnegie Hall immediately after these performances.
Program will be performed in French with English subtitles.
