About

This performance features a staged performance of Stravinsky’s neoclassical theatre piece “The Soldier’s Tale” with a seven-piece orchestra on stage. Musicians will be joined on stage by Knoxville’s Marble City Opera performers as they relate the story through narration and dance. This charming cautionary tale tells the story of a soldier who trades his fiddle to the devil for fame and fortune (reminiscent of “The Devil Went Down to Georgia”!) allowing audiences to join in the story through live storytelling set to music. This program also includes Mendelssohn’s String Quartet No. 6 featuring the KSO Principal Quartet.
