Stravinsky’s compact masterpiece, composed in isolated Switzerland during the First World War, is as vital to the canon as ever, but it is rarely performed in the full staged version that he and the librettist, C. F. Ramuz, envisioned. Now the piece is being mounted by the Yale Schools of Music and Drama, with an honored alumnus, Michael Cerveris, leading the cast of student actors, and with the clarinettist David Shifrin leading the music; the new English translation is by Liz Diamond, who directs. (Zankel Hall. 212-247-7800. April 6 at 7:30.)
