Joined by her band and the 36-strong Chorus of Opera North, Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter and composer Julia Holter ventures into astonishing and beautiful new territory with her live soundtrack for The Passion of Joan of Arc.
Digging deeper into her longstanding fascination with the art, history and music of the Middle Ages, Holter’s score for Carl Theodor Dreyer’s visionary 1928 silent film weaves an immense sonic tapestry from medieval chants, bells, organs and the massed voices of Opera North’s ensemble.
The breathtaking music of one of today’s most remarkable artists meets the intensely expressive universe of a landmark of early cinema.
