Pre-Sibafest: A Soldier’s Tale
Amidst the madness of the First World War, composer Igor Stravinsky set a Russian folk tale as a musical play entitled A Soldier’s Tale. A hundred years later, Stravinsky’s classic work remains a topical story of human greed and short-sightedness. This curious combination of drama and music is performed in a joint production by two schools of Uniarts Helsinki, the Theatre Academy and the Sibelius Academy.
