Jeanne d'Arc au bûcher (Joan of Arc at the Stake) is an oratorio by Arthur Honegger, originally commissioned by Ida Rubinstein. It was set to a libretto by Paul Claudel, and the work runs about 70 minutes. It premiered on 12 May 1938 in Basel, with Rubinstein as Jeanne, and Jean Périer in the speaking role of Brother Dominique, with the Basel Boys Choir singing the children's chorus part, and Paul Sacher conducting.
Arthur Honegger's Jeanne d'Arc au bûcher (Joan of Arc at the Stake) was composed in 1938 and has remained one of his most popular works. Beyond the timelessly compelling quality of the subject matter, which is actually handled in a totally non-melodramatic way, the piece, which Honegger called a dramatic oratorio, weaves astonishing variety into its roughly 75 minutes of music. With text by poet Paul Claudel, it offers not operatic development but a series of tableaux, some of them depicting Joan's recollections from her earlier life.
