By Francisco Salazar

Opera Company of Middlebury in Vermont is set to present “The Maid of Orleans.”

The production, which is set to be presented at Middlebury’s Town Hall Theater, will be “the first full production of this magnificent opera in New England.” It will also mark the first live production for the company since 2019. The company has since performed two operas that streamed online, including “Completing the Picture” and “Candide.”

Mezzo-soprano Annie Rosen will sing the role of Joan of Arc alongside tenor James Flora as King Charles VII and soprano Meredith Lustig singing the role of Agnes Sorel. Music Director Michael Sakir conducts the OCM 25-piece orchestra.

In a statement, OCM’s Artistic Director Douglas Anderson said, “We’re thrilled to have artists of this caliber in these demanding roles.”

“The Maid of Orleans” opens on Oct. 1 and runs through Oct. 9, 2021.
