Stravinsky The Soldier’s Tale

Sian Edwards conductor
Alistair McGowan the Devil
Richard Williams director

A punchy evening of 20th century classics in the intimacy of the Corn Exchange. In a tale for our times, Alistair McGowan leads three actors and a dancer in Stravinsky’s 1918 masterpiece, The Soldier’s Tale. Part anti-war, part Russian fable, it’s a satiric story of a soldier, his violin, and the Devil.

The first half opens with a treat for brass fans – Stravinsky’s stunningly cool Ebony Concerto, written for Woody Herman’s band. Milhaud’s ballet score explores the African-influenced jazz of 1920s Paris, while Kurt Weill’s Threepenny Opera Suite takes us to Berlin – with Mack the Knife, Cannon Song, Tango Ballad and more
