The Soldier's Tale

Grand County High School Auditorium

Igor Stravinsky: L'Histoire du soldat

Event Description: 

The evening begins at 7pm with a talk with Pulitzer Prize and GRAMMY Award-winning Librettist/Lyricist, Mark Campbell, Music Director, Michael Barrett, and several of the performing artists.

Igor Stravinsky’s The Soldier’s Tale bookends  this year’s Festival, examining how war can affect us individually and as a society. Now 100 years old,  the narrative receives a fresh treatment from Pulitzer and GRAMMY™ winning librettist Mark Campbell, who puts a contemporary spin on this  Faustian story. What happens when you sell your fiddle in exchange for wealth? What if the buyer happens to be the embodiment of evil: Satan? Much of the story will be told through dance by award winning choreographer Joshua Bergasse who also directs. The original band of seven instruments performs all of Stravinsky’s music.

Adults: $25

Students (ages 6-18): $5

Suitable for ages 6 and up.
