Tonight we braved the snow and ice to see the Orlando Consort present La Passion de Jeanne d’Arc (1928) with a program of live 15th century music. This was my first time seeing this iconic film and I’m not sure how I made it 45 years without seeing any film directed by Carl Theodor Dreyer — I’ve been missing out!
In many ways the Orlando Consort’s presentation of live music with silent film was tremendously successful, but in other respects, I think they missed the mark. I’m excited to being thinking about a project that might pick up on some of those missed opportunities…
What’s for sure is that I need to see more of Dreyer’s films.
