St. Joan of Arc
Composer: Rubyana T. Carilli
Librettist: James K. Gerth
Premiere Date: Not available.
Description: The opera begins with a ballet, and once finished, Joan appears motionless, looking like a statue of Saint Joan d'Arc. People from her life enter and form a circle around her while dancers present lilies and roses to King Charles and Joan's Guard. The group carries on and the men salute her. After speaking with God, Joan leads the Army chorus into battle at Patay. After victorious advances, Joan enters carrying a dying English soldier. She explains that God created no enemies and wraps the soldier's body with her banner. Captured, Joan is brought before the tribunal knowing her pre-judged fate. Alone in her cell, Joan is watched by the Guard that has been attracted to her and protects her from attacks from the tribunal and nefarious men in the prison. Her fate has arrived and smoke from the pyre/torch is seen turning into the form of a dove, symbolizing the ascension of Joan's pure soul to Heaven. Afterward, the Guard feels great loss for Joan's earthly presence.
