Music, Dance and Performance: The Soldier’s Tale

Based on a Russian folk tale, The Soldier’s Tale (also known as L'histoire du soldat) follows a deserting soldier who sells his soul to the devil in exchange for a book that predicts the future. The virtuosic score that Igor Stravinsky composed for The Soldier’s Tale in 1918 has been re-conceptualized many times. In 1993, novelist Kurt Vonnegut revamped the story to explore the life of Eddy Slovik, the only American soldier executed for desertion in World War II, and the first since the Civil War.
