LMH Simpkins Lee Theatre 3rd Week Trinity 11th & 12th May 8pm TICKETS
A chance to see the work of one of the greatest modern composers the way it was envisaged by the New York City Ballet.
"The Soldier's Tale" was conceived and written in the aftermath of the First World War with Stravinsky facing the possibility of permanent exile from Russia. The ballet concerns the travails of a soldier returning from the wars. As he makes his way home our hero is accosted by the devil in disguise. What ensues is a tale of treachery and tragedy told through music and dance that resonates with contemporary audiences as powerfully as it did when Stravinsky first wrote the piece.
This is a Faustian tale par excellence, profoundly humane and perpetually compelling, re-imagined for the Oxford stage and passionately brought to life by talented dancers, musicians and actors in 3rd week of Trinity term. Showing for two nights only, this is an experience not to be missed.
