Odyssey Opera kicks off its 2017-2018 season, Trial By Fire: Joan of Arc and the Hundred Year War, with Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's "The Maid of Orleans." This one-night-only concert opera performance will be at Jordan Hall September 16, 2017, at 7:30pm.|
In The Maid of Orleans, Tchaikovsky's sixth opera, the tale of Joan of Arc (to be played by mezzo-soprano Kate Aldrich) is presented in the Grand Opera style. Tchaikovsky remains true to much of the Joan legend. From her innocence and visions to to her strength in battle. We see the betrayal of Joan by her father, her persecution, ultimate execution and fiery martyrdom. Tchaikovsky's score creates a lush impassioned sound world while also creating a nuanced musical portrait of the intrepid maiden who led the French army to victory.
Sung in Russian with English supertitles.
