The Soldiers Tale
Dance, mime, music and theatre all work together in this stunning Scottish production of Stravinsky's "The Soldier's Tale". The story is a simple yet moving account of a soldier who is tricked into selling his soul to the devil in exchange for a book which provides the answer to every question.
The Soldiers Tale remains as fresh as ever, a seminal masterpiece of modern music theatre with cosmopolitan musical references from Argentine tango to American ragtime, from Bach chorale to Spanish paso doble.
