If you missed yesterday’s webcast on medici.tv of Honegger’s oratorio ‘Joan at the Stake‘ (Jeanne au bûcher) starring Marion Cotillard live from Barcelona you have still 90 days to watch it in delayed streaming on their website or here (see video above). It’s truly an amazing work, brought to life perfectly by the many musicians, choirs and the main reciters, especially Marion Cotillard. As Joan of Arc she was both powerful and vulnerable. From the first moment she makes you feel what she’s going through. And by the end you’re crying with her. It’s only when the applause starts that you can observe her waking from being Joan and becoming Marion again. The applause lasted for 10 minutes and Marion & the other leads came back on stage 3 times.
