Join us for this new operatic-meditation-musical-theater-cantata-chamber-music-storytelling-performance-art piece! Originally created by writer Laura Harrington and composer Mel Marvin, this production has been adapted by Nautilus especially for Jennifer Baldwin Peden, who tells the story of the trial of Joan of Arc, the 17-year-old peasant girl who hears mysterious voices telling her to take command of the French army and drive the English out of 15th-century France. JOAN OF ARC is a powerful and intimate look at Joan as the teenager she actually was -- captured by the English, tried as a heretic by the Catholic Church, and burned at the stake.
Jen electrified audiences at last year’s Ivey Awards program with her performance of an excerpt from JOAN OF ARC. She’ll be joined by Nautilus performers JP Fitzgibbons, Laurie Flanigan Hegge, and Joel Liestman along with music director Sonja Thompson and cellist Randall Thompson. The production is staged by Nautilus’ artistic director Ben Krywosz, with scenic and costume design by Victoria Petrovich, lighting design by Michael Wangen, and technical direction by Jon Hegge.
All performances will be presented in Nautilus loft studio, with very limited seating -- only 40 seats per performance are available. Get your tickets today for what will surely be one of the most spectacular Twin Cities’ theater events this year!
