Joan
Her story in music 
Libretto by Alyssa Wills
Music by Kevin Weed

 

The fascinating story of Joan of Arc comes to life in a four-act opera. From her small village in Domrémy to the battlefields outside of Orleans and finally the burning stake at Rouen, follow the path of this young woman who, despite all odds, followed her calling and changed history, touching the lives of everyone she met along the way.

At the end of act one, Joan has just enthusiastically accepted the mission from her Voices to leave her home and lead an army to free France from English control. Now alone, the church bells cause her to pause, the full realization of what she has just agreed to dawning on her. Suddenly overcome by fear and uncertainty, she struggles to say goodbye to her home. With a final surrender to God's will, she is once again filled with peace and a sense of purpose. She tells those she leaves behind to rejoice that God has chosen her to save their country, and she reminds them, along with herself, to trust in Him.
