Odyssey Opera kicks off its 2017-2018 season, Trial By Fire: Joan of Arc and the Hundred Year War, with Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's "The Maid of Orleans." This one-night-only concert opera performance will be at Jordan Hall September 16, 2017, at 7:30pm. In Maid of Orléans (1878), Tchaikovsky’s sixth opera, Joan falls for a British soldier who switches alliances to the French army, a more accurate story. Tchaikovsky remains true to Joan’s fiery martyrdom, and her legendary encounter with Charles VII, and creates a musical portrait of an intrepid girl leading the French army.
