Christine de Pizan’s Song of Joan of Arc was written in 1429, at the height of Joan’s heroism, one year before her capture and two years before her execution. Christine, who also famously authored the Book of the City of Ladies, also passed away around this time. By staging this text alongside French music from the period, we strive to depict the virtues and pitfalls of Joan’s many complicated loves: of self, of King, and of country.
