VOICES – The Life and Death of Joan of Arc (Opera – libretto by David Saint – 2005)

This opera was commissioned by the Northampton Music and Performing Arts Youth Theatre in 2004, and was performed over 2 nights in July 2005 by members of the Youth Theatre accompanied by a 22 piece orchestra and conducted by me. I have since used quite a lot of the musical material in two orchestral suites named, appropriately, Jehanne D'Arc Suites No 1 & 2.

The following clip of the overture was created using Sibelius 5 Essentials

This opera is not currently available for performance.
