The Passion of Joan of Arc at Wells Cathedral

  • Wells Cathedral Cathedral Green Wells, England, BA5 United Kingdom (map)

Hauser & Wirth Somerset, in collaboration with Adrian Utley (Portishead), Will Gregory (Goldfrapp) and award-winning conductor Charles Hazlewood, presents a special live orchestral performance and film screening in the magnificent medieval setting of Wells Cathedral. Adrian Utley and Will Gregory have devised a new score soundtracking the dramatic and moving narrative of Danish film director Carl Theodor Dreyer’s ‘The Passion of Joan of Arc’ (1928), which chronicles Joan of Arc’s trial and execution during her captivity in France. Initially commissioned by Colston Hall and supported by Watershed, Bristol, the inventive new score will be performed live alongside a screening of the film, led by Charles Hazlewood with guitars, horns, harp, synthesisers, percussion and an 8 voice choir.
