THE SOLDIER’S STORY

Junge Oper (young opera) Stuttgart

With musicians of the state orchestra, actors and dancers

A soldier sells his violin and his soul to the devil to obtain a magic book, which both predicts the future and brings him great wealth.

Musicians of the state orchestra, the actor Thomas Kellner as narrator, soldier and devil, as well as the dancer Kadir “Amigo” Memis, who has developed a style of his own between Hip Hop and expressive dance, together play Igor Strawinsky’s fascinating piece of traveling theater.
