Honegger’s “Jeanne d’Arc au bûcher” with Alan Gilbert and Marion Cotillard

The defendant is a national heroine: in Arthur Honegger’s oratorio Joan of Arc at the Stake, Joan of Orleans looks back on her life during a show trial. The work is a moving drama and at the same time a parable on corruption and abuse of power. Honegger combines different musical styles here, from the Baroque chorale to a jazzy music hall sound. Alan Gilbert conducts, the speaking role of Joan of Arc is performed by actress and Oscar winner Marion Cotillard.
