Juanjo Mena will make his debut at the Teatro Real in Madrid from 7th June, conducting eight performances of Arthur Honegger’s dramatic oratorio Jeanne d’Arc au Bûcher (Joan of Arc at the Stake). The new co-production with the Frankfurt Opera, by Alex Ollé of La Fura dels Baus features the Oscar-winning actress Marion Cotillard in the title role, as well as a stellar cast of soloists, and the orchestra and chorus of the Teatro Real. Claude Debussy’s cantata La damoiselle élue (The Blessed Damozel), with libretto by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, opens the programme.
