It was announced on Wednesday that Marion Cotillard will be front and center in the New York Philharmonic’s upcoming production of Arthur Honegger’s “Joan of Arc at the Stake.” The Academy Award-winning actress isn’t new to the 1938 dramatic oratorio: she starred in a production by the Orléans Orchestra in 2005 and the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra in 2012. The new production, staged by the director Côme de Bellescize, was first created for Japan’s Saito Kinen Festival Matsumoto in 2012, and will reportdly feature members of the Comédie-Française. The New York Philharmonic staged the premiere of Honegger’s “Joan of Arc” in 1948. The new production will hit the stage of the Avery Fisher Hall in June 2015.
