It’s about the realization in a non-theatrical space, outdoors, of the show performed months earlier at the Teatro Massimo in Palermo. The context is very different: the austere space of the Emperor Charles V Palace is forced here to indulge in the uniqueness of the circular plan by inserting a T-shape stage that cuts the stalls in two; the Orchestra is positioned behind the stage, the Chorus is placed on the upper floor of the building.

The action takes place in between the audience and all around, fully exploiting also the large circular corridors of the Palazzo both on the ground and upper floors. Stage action, costumes, lights, and video projections enhanced by this constant exposure to the viewer’s gaze, stimulated by multiple simultaneous appearances that emphasize the phantasmagoria conceived by Honegger and Claudel when narrating the story of Jean D’Arc.
