There is another level in addition to the German parent texts of the performance, Sung in Italian. In some ways, Giovanna d’ Arco has to do also with the Hamburg University of music and theatre. Because she is busy with the soloists of Hanna Zumsande as Giovanna (a current graduate), with Benjamin Bruns (Carlo/tenor), Member of the Vienna State Opera, a former graduates, and with Geerd Smits (Giacomo/baritone) a current Professor of the Institute. The choirs, representing particularly many identities in this opera, are choir and vocal ensemble St.
Jacobi, and a specially assembled male choir singing. Church music a living tradition, diversity, and originality characterize music life at St. Jacobi. With an especially wide range of programme and performance practice, St.
Jacobi in a unique way contributes to the musical heritage of four centuries in church services and concerts are heard. The Arp-Schnitger-organ and the modern Kemper organ, the choir and the vocal ensemble as the choirs of St. Jacobi and the Cappella Praetoriana Orchestra ensembles, Cythara Ensemble and Concertone Hamburg are sound bodies, which meet all musical genres and styles. With the medieval church room, the separate South aisle, the Schnitgersaal Tower, the Jacobi, Mr. Hall and the Barocktreppenhaus on the north side has a rare wealth of venues, always again creatively used for new concert forms. From early music to modern, from the cantata-musical, from the Sunday to the musical theme night St. Jacobi offers always evocative sound experience inside the Church. You can get an impression with the recordings of organ and choral music, continually arising in recent years.
