Silent film with live orchestra and chorale. Featuring the masterpiece The Passion of Joan of Arc 

The original version of Theodor Dreyer’s iconic silent film The Passion of Joan of Arc (1928) was rediscovered in 1981. The recovery and remastering of the film caused an international sensation. In 1994, American composer Richard Einhorn wrote a brand-new soundtrack for the film, Voices of Light, for solo voices, chorus and orchestra. Einhorn’s libretto interestingly draws from a variety of medieval and renaissance sources, including religious texts, mystic writings by women, and excerpts from the actual trial of Joan of Arc. The luminous, otherworldly, powerfully evocative music creates an unforgettable counterpoint to the film, resulting in a memorable and deeply affecting artistic experience.
