In the mock-heroic Pulzella d’Orleans, , Voltaire attacks the alliance between monarchic and catholic power in its stirring-up of nationalism and superstition. Stefano Jacini takes on the satirical intent, identifying the false sexual moralism and female submission, to which in reality Joan of Arc rebels, as the ideal means to conquer illegitimate, foolish and hypocritical authority. Vacchi chose a narrative, playful and desecrating style, thus indirectly mocking the aesthetic dogmas of so-called “contemporary” musical theatre, in the conviction that every ideological diktat hides an occult power unmasked by Enlightenment, not only in the strictly eighteenth-century sense of the word. An opera that is entertaining and thought-provoking, ending not with the burning of the young woman, but with her flight on the back of a donkey, an animal which, from an anti-speciesist point of view, is nobly literary and irresistible for its primordial erotic energy.
