Giovanna d’Arco

Giuseppe Verdi

Presentation
Come to the battlefield – I will guide you!

In Reims in 1429, Joan of Arc urges King Charles VII to do battle. For his seventh opera, Giuseppe Verdi built on the success of Nabucco and I Lombardi. The libretto of Giovanna d’Arco concentrates on the ‘here and now’ and on the main protagonist’s struggles. As a result, the historical events make way for impressive choral tableaux and a heroic musical characterisation of Giovanna. This autumn the La Monnaie audience will be given an insight into the fascinating figure of Joan of Arc: through the prism of the 19th century in this concert performance of Verdi’s opera, and later in the stage production of Honegger’s Jeanne d’Arc au bûcher
