The Passion of Joan of Arc. This critically acclaimed 1928 silent film by Carl Dreyer with a new 2018 restoration is brought to life with a haunting new score, which re-imagines this classic with a modern urgency. Combining electronic music with string quartet, early music chant by four voice choir, composer George Sarah has crafted an unforgettable visual and auditory experience.
After being commissioned by Los Angeles Grand Performances in 2010 to compose and perform a live score for "The Passion of Joan of Arc," George Sarah is in the process of booking live performances of this film score throughout North America and Europe. Ideal for Classic Film theaters and performing arts centers, this performance is also appropriate for outdoor community-sponsored performances.
