Dec 17, 2012 | L'histoire du soldat

A representation of Stravinsky’s Soldier’s Tale: a 1918 theatrical work “to be read, played, and danced.”

We proudly brought to Miami the mesmerizing collaborative project: Igor Stravinsky’s L’Histoire du Soldat. Rarely done in its original version, due to the virtuosity and complexity demanded from all artists, this piece integrates narration, dance and an adept group of seven musicians.  You will surely be taken on a journey from the moment you walk through the doors of the M Building showroom, comfortably nestled within the  Wynwood Art District.

Act 1:  A solider’s life musimelange style with Little Black Dress vodka doing the cocktails; and healthy little bites by Celebrity Chef Jackie.

Act 2:  L’Historire du Soldat (The Soldiers tale) presented by the ensemble cast of: Marco Real-d’Arbelles-conductor, Konstantin Soukhovetski*- actor & narrator,  Liony Garcia- dancer, Anne Chicheportiche- violin, Hernan Matute- bass, Nuno Antunes- clarinet, Adrian Morejon- bassoon, Mary Bowden- trumpet, Gilberto Cruz- trombone, and Dexter Dwight- percussion.

Act 3:  Enjoyed the company of the artists while indulging in a dessert that complements the evening.
