WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Igor Stravinsky's Faustian tale pits a deserted soldier against the devil himself in a battle for love, art, and the soldier's soul. Written while exiled in Switzerland during World War I, L'Histoire du Soldat finds Stravinsky moving away from his Russian traditionalism to embrace the new world of jazz—resulting in an economical theater work that merges acting, dancing, and a septet of seemingly disparate instruments.

Broadway Chamber Players presents its first multidisciplinary program, bringing together some of the Theater District's finest artists, who can currently be seen nightly in The Lion King, The King and I, Finding Neverland, Les Misérables, and more!
