February 9…. Lubbock Symphony Orchestra 2016 Season: Winter
Chamber L’Histoire du Soldat - “The Soldier’s
Tale” is a modern re-telling of the classic Faust story that
simultaneously takes the tale back to its rustic roots. This mixed-media
work uniquely combines dance, narration, and chamber orchestra to
depict a young WWI soldier who trades his violin to the devil for
a magic book that predicts the future. After learning how to use
the book, the young soldier follows the devil’s advice to
‘put the book to good use,’ amassing his fortune. He
begins to pine for the simplicity of his soldier’s life and
purchases his old violin back from the devil...but finds he can
no longer play. He discovers that a princess lays dying and the
King has vowed that whomever heals her will become her husband.
The devil, disguised as a virtuoso violinist, is also vying for
the hand of the princess. After strategically losing his fortune
to the devil in a card game, the soldier regains his ability to
play. He miraculously heals the princess with his virtuosic power
and she begins to dance. The devil tries to destroy the couple,
but the soldier enthralls him with his playing and forces him to
dance to exhaustion. The devil succumbs, but warns the soldier that
if he ever leaves the castle, the devil will take his soul. After
many years of happy marriage, the soldier’s mother falls deathly
ill. The princess urges him to visit her, and the devil awaits him
as he approaches the castle door. For more information and to reserve
