L’Histoire Du Soldat at CBU


January 28, 2012  –  8:00pm
performed at the Christian Brothers University Theater

Igor Stravinsky’s L’histoire du Soldat combines acting, symphonic music and dance to tell the story of a Soldier, who possesses a violin, and the Devil, with whom he exchanges it in return for a book which will show him how to obtain all that he can desire. Once the contract has been made, the Devil is hard to evade. Life has a habit of returning to beginnings.  You don’t want to miss the one-time performance of this rarely performed work.  The Memphis Chamber Players composed of members of the Memphis Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Joseph Montelione, bring Stravinsky’s score to life on the stage with dancers from the New Ballet Ensemble and actors from the Memphis Community.
