    Featuring world-renowned actor Harry Lennix as the narrator!

    With its crisp narrative — a soldier sells his violin (and thus his soul) to the Devil, fights to win it back, but ultimately loses it again — its dance-rich, jazz-influenced melodies; and its dramatic text, Stravinsky’s Masterpiece Histoire du Soldat (“The Soldier’s Tale”) offers abundant sonorous possibilities for all ages. Join members of the ECO for an intimate presentation of this classic story told within the lovely confines of the Episcopal Cathedral.
