“This season, each one of Odyssey Opera’s productions reflects the socio-political contexts from which they sprang, peppered with doses of religion, propaganda, or patriotism,” Each composer represented in this season has, with their unique sonic language, captured the passion of the wondrous French maiden in operas that evoke a world filled with angelic and demonic voices, tolling bells, kings and clerics, soldiers and Joan’s own people, the peasants of France.
