Production details

Opera North Projects has commissioned the Los Angeles singer-songwriter, composer and producer Julia Holter to create an ambitious new soundtrack for the revelatory 1928 silent film The Passion of Joan of Arc. Joined by the Leeds-based company's 36-strong Chorus and her own three-piece band, Holter will premiere her new score at Leeds Town Hall on 24 June 2020, with a further performance at the Barbican, London on 27 June. Over the course of five studio albums Holter has pushed her experiments with vocals, songwriting and musical structures into astonishing and beautiful new territories. In scoring Carl Theodor Dreyer's visionary telling of the martyrdom of the French saint, she finds an immense sonic tapestry at her fingertips, and an opportunity to dig deeper into her longstanding fascination with the art, history and music of the medieval era.
