‘A Soldier’s Tale (Histoire du Soldat)’

SARANAC LAKE – Pendragon Theatre will present “A Soldier’s Tale (Histoire du Soldat)” at 2 p.m. Sunday at the theater and at 7 p.m. Sunday at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts.

A darkly comic fable of a common soldier’s thwarted homecoming at the hands of the devil. Igor Stravinsky’s “The Soldier’s Tale (L’Histoire du Soldat)” was written in collaboration with Swiss librettist C.F. Ramuz.

Performed by three actors, several dancers and a septet of instruments, the dramatic staging is accompanied by an effervescent score highlighting themes of greed, avarice and power. Bring the family to enjoy this collaborative venture between the Lake Placid Sinfonietta and Pendragon!

Directed by Karen Lordi-Kirkham. Choreography by Sarah Skaggs. Featuring John Nicholson as the narrator.

Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door.
