Program Details


Stravinsky: L'Histoire du Soldat
de Falla: Master Pedro's Puppet Show


The 2010 Castleton Festival closes with two unique musical works in a double-bill performance. 


Igor Stravinsky's L'Histoire du Soldat ("Soldier's Tale") tells the story of a Russian soldier who sells his violin to the devil in order to tell the future.  Based on a famed Russian folk tale, Stravinsky's retelling showcases a chamber ensemble of musicians with naration and spoken dialogue.  Resident Stage Director, William Kerley, brings this magical tale to life in a new innovative staging with English text. 


Manuel de Falla's Master Pedro's Puppet Show is a whimsical work drawn from Cervantes' "Don Quixote."  Performed in Spanish and featuring innovative puppetry design by New York City's "The Puppet Kitchen."
