Welcome to Magnifique Marion Cotillard! Marion's best known for her award winning performance in La Vie en Rose, but you might also recognise her from movies such as Inception, Midnight in Paris, The Dark Knight Rises and The French Rust and Bone. Collecting nominations for her latest film Two Days, One Night and starring in the upcoming adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth, Marion Cotillard is finally making a comeback to leading roles. Not stopping at movies, Marion Cotillard is also exploring her musical talents, having toured with French rock band Yodelice and recorded a song and video with British band Metronomy. She's also taken over the fashion industry as the face of Lady Dior. All the while, she is never too busy for her family and to lend her time and name to causes she believes in.

I also added the ‘Joan of Arc at the Stakepress release to our press archive. This is a quote from Marion Cotillard about the news (also see video below):

“It is a great joy for me to be part of this tremendous adventure of Jeanne d’Arc au bûcher staged by the inspired Côme de Bellescize. Sharing this experience with the New York Philharmonic and the great actors Éric Génovèse and Christian Gonon will be an amazing journey. I want to warmly thank Alan Gilbert and Matthew VanBesien for offering us such a great opportunity. I feel so lucky and I am looking forward to sharing this work, which is, at this point, one of my greatest experiences as an actress.”

Conductor Alan Gilbert calls her his hero and a brilliant actress and director Côme de Bellescize said that “it’s a great pleasure and honor to have the opportunity to work with Marion, especially for a play that has such meaning for her.”

The two times Marion Cotillard had taken on this role before were concert versions but this time it will be a staged version. Inspired by a gothic cathedral square Joan (Marion Cotillard) and the stake will be positioned on a platform in the middle of the orchestra. Côme de Bellescize has staged this version before, in 2012 in Japan.

Interestingly, in the notes for Côme de Bellescize’s recent play Amédée it says that he will not only recreate the 2012 staging of Jeanne au bûcher in New York but also in March 2015 in Paris – with Marion Cotillard. I can’t wait for more info!

Just now New York Philharmonic are currently announcing their 2014/15 season in a webcast. And there’s great news, they tweeted:
