This event is a special collaboration between the Lexington Ballet Company and the Lexington Chamber Players. Artistic Director, Luis Dominguez, along with Lexington Philharmonic concertmaster, Daniel Mason, lead a group of talented musicians, actors, and dancers to bring this masterpiece to life.
The Soldier's Tale (L'Histoire du Soldat) was conceived by Igor Stravinsky and Swiss writer, C. F. Ramuz, based on a Russian folk tale, The Runaway Soldier and the Devil. The parable tells the story of a Joseph, who trades his fiddle to the devil in return for a book that will reveal the future. The inevitable deception is slowly discovered while the violin remains pivitol in the battle between good and evil.
Join us for an inspiring night of music, theater, and dance for all audiences.
