THE SOLDIER’S TALE by Igor Stravinsky & C.F. Ramuz

A soldier returning from war strikes a deal to sell his battered old fiddle to The Devil on a promise of ‘wealth untold’. When he later discovers he’s been cruelly tricked out of everything he holds dear, he sets out on a new path.

SABOTAGE THEATRE’s first collaboration with chamber orchestra BRIDGETOWER MUSIC is a new, fully staged and exciting production of Stravinsky’s trail-blazing music theatre masterpiece, The Soldier’s Tale, 100 years since it was first performed.
Expect comic chaos and shady showmanship in a modern fable that will appeal to all ages. With Stravinsky’s magpie genius for musical styles, we hear tango, ragtime, waltzes and Bach chorales, all mixed within a savage folk tale where the Devil has, quite literally, all the best tunes!
