Harris Theater for Music and Dance (205 E. Randolph St.)
Verdi’s seventh opera is a bold and vivid portrayal of the iconic Joan of Arc, a woman sacrificing everything in fighting for her beliefs and her country. The young Verdi excels in writing some of his most brilliant orchestral and choral music for this passionate story. Chosen by our audiences to celebrate Verdi’s 200th birthday, this poignant piece assures an evening of vocal fireworks and gripping drama.
