A deal with the devil leads to a raucous, diabolical fable-drama in Stravinsky’s A Soldier’s Tale.
The soldier at the center of Stravinsky’s L’Histoire du Soldat is a Faustian anti-hero for the ages, trading his soul for worldly riches and fame. Conceived together with Swiss poet C.F. Ramuz as a portable theater piece during World War I, when large-scale productions were not possible, Stravinsky brought all of his cheeky wit and rhythmic precision to bear in this modernist masterpiece.
