Scene 3 is offstage.

After a few moments, we hear the clash of arms, explosions, and JOAN's voice crying:

Duke of Alençon, tell me when the tail of my banner touches the rampart!... Charge!... My friends, my friends, Our Lord has condemned the English; this moment, they are ours!...

DUKE OF ALENÇON

Joan, it is touching!...

JOAN

Jesus, Mary! Forward, all is Yours!... Go through there. (We hear the cries of the English and, over them, JOAN shouting:)

Victory! Victory! ( The French take up the shout:) Victory! Victory!... Long live Joan of Arc!... Long live the liberator of Orléans!... — (JOAN responds:) Long live Christ! Long live Charles VII! (All the French cry out together:) Long live Christ! Long live Joan the Maid! Long live the King and the Kingdom of the French!
