About Norman Dello Joio
Dello Joio's first opera, The Triumph of St. Joan, (1950) was not a critical success, and he reworked it into a symphony, first titled The Triumph of St. Joan and later renamed Seraphic Ode. He later composed a new opera on the same subject, which was originally titled The Trial at Rouen but was later also performed under the title The Triumph of St. Joan (1959).
