I'm writing to invite you to a concert of a opera I wrote based on the life of Joan of Arc. It would be great if you could send a representative of your theater to a performance. We are looking for a theater to do a full production of the opera. The performance information is in the announcement below.

BLURB: Joan of Arc was born during the protracted Hundred Years War. France was being torn apart, as the nobility of England and France fought over who would take the French throne. Joan of Arc enters this historic fray, to raise the siege of Orleans and escort the Dauphin to Reims to be crowned king of France (Charles VII). She was captured, put on trial for heresy and crimes against the faith.
