The Passion of Joan of Arc with live music written and performed by George Sarah featuring electronics, voices, and strings

The critically acclaimed 1928 silent film by Carl Dreyer is brought to life with a haunting new score performed live which re-imagines the classic film (with a new 2018 restoration) with a modern urgency. Combining electronic music with four voice choir and string quartet, L.A. composer George Sarah has crafted a moving and an unforgettable visual and auditory experience. After being commissioned by Los Angeles Grand Performances to compose a live score for The Passion of Joan of Arc (La Passion de Jeanne d’Arc), Sarah has been performing this piece throughout the U.S. 


George Sarah is an electronic composer and multi-instrumentalist. Born in Seoul, South Korea, he moved to the USA at the age of five. He has garnered critical acclaim for his unique brand of electronic acoustic music bridging the normally discrete musical worlds of electronic and classical as well as Americana and folk music.

Director: Carl Theodor Dreyer
Starring: Renée Jeanne Falconetti, Eugène Silvain, André Berley, & Maurice Schutz
