Joan of Arc-by local composer John Partridge
4:00 PM
Trinity Episcopalian Church
Description:
By the middle of the 15th century, England and France had been at war for over 70 years, but it looked like the English were about to finally defeat the French and put Henry VI (the 9-year-old King of England) on the throne of France, combining the two kingdoms. All they needed to do was to capture the town of Orleans. They laid siege to the town and things looked hopeless. Then an illiterate teen-aged girl arrived in command of a small group of soldiers. She claimed that two Saints had appeared to her and had commanded her to drive the English away.

To everyone’s amazement, she broke through the English lines, causing them to abandon the siege of Orleans. She quickly followed this up with more victories, but eventually she was captured by the English and put on trial for her life. She was accused of heresy and witchcraft. The opera covers the period of her trial and eventual execution.
