At 17, she hears voices. At 18, she liberates the city of Orléans. At 19, she is burned alive.
“I had to understand better, to see more. I wanted to know her, this twin of life and death, I wanted to hear her through time.”
Jehanne – Opéra de Château is a performance in which lyrical voices plunge Jeanne, a 23-year-old student, into the heart of the virgin. Through a refined and spectacular staging, the audience is taken along with the heroine on an adventure of courage and determination that shatters the image of the poor and foolish woman.
