An American Soldier’s Tale/A Fiddler’s Tale
May 4, 2014 @ 12:00 AM - May 10, 2014 @ 12:00 AM
In this double bill, performed by the Long Beach Opera, Igor Stravinsky’s L’Histoire du Soldat (The Soldier’s Tale) gets reimagined by both Kurt Vonnegut and Wynton Marsalis. Vonnegut’s An American Soldier’s Tale is an account of the first American soldier executed for desertion since the Civil War, in 1945. Marsalis’s A Fiddler’s Tale uses jazz and other late-20th-century music to tell the story of a young musician. More information
