On the 4th and 5th of March, and after two performances earlier in both Monaco and Toulouse, Marion took to the stage in Paris, to give life to Joan of Arc, in an oratorio she had performed twice before in 2005 and 2012, Jeanne d’Arc Au Bûcher by Honegger. The performance was slightly different than those of the previous years. The oratorio was staged like a play instead of having the actors speak their lines in front of the orchestra.

There were costumes, more actors than the previous ones and even the stake was present in this version. Directed by Côme de Bellescize, the oratorio counts with beautiful music and angelic voices from the choir as Marion delivers her lines. I was lucky enough to see it on the 4th of March and sit insanely close to the stage and I can tell you it was beyond stunning. Marion delivered a beautiful performance, as did everyone else involved, the entire thing gave me chills. Bravo to all involved!

The oratorio goes to New York in June and Marion will be performing it four nights in a row. If you can, don’t miss it. It’s truly a brilliant experience.

I have added photos of the performance to the gallery and found an interview Marion Cotillard gave while performing in Toulouse in February. Be sure to check it out.
