The Bushwick Starr is thrilled to present THE SOLDIER'S TALE, based on Stravinsky's timeless story of a violin, a book of riches, and a deal with the devil, brought to life by Puppet Kitchen Productions.
*The show is family friendly and open to all ages!
A soldier, returning from war, makes a deal with the devil. Suddenly, the soldier finds himself trying to make his way through what he thought was a familiar world. Everyday objects are expertly manipulated to Stravinsky's beautiful music to become roads, castles, flying coaches, even kings, princesses, and the devil himself. At once playful and dark, the hero of The Soldier's Tale explores the changing world around him, and the consequences of his choices.
Directed by Emily DeCola, performed by Eric Wright, Mindy Leanse, and Teddy Yudain. Light and Set Design by Cecilia Durbin. Music Direction and Arrangement by Nathan Koci. Music Consultation by Emily Hope Price.
The Soldier's Tale was made possible, in part, by a family grant from The Jim Henson Foundation, and by the Orchestra of St. Luke's who originally commissioned the development of this piece in 2012.
