The Yale in New York concert series, under the artistic direction of David Shifrin, presents a new collaboration between the Yale School of Music and Yale School of Drama: a fully-staged original production and new translation of Igor Stravinsky’s darkly comic The Soldier’s Tale. Performances will take place Tuesday, April 1 at 8 pm in Morse Recital Hall on the Yale campus (details), and Sunday, April 6 at 7:30 pm in Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall in New York City.
This production marks one of the largest collaborations between the Yale School of Music and Yale School of Drama. It brings together School of Music faculty and student musicians with the School of Drama faculty, student, and alumni designers, actors, and technicians.
Stravinsky’s The Soldier’s Tale (L’histoire du Soldat) was written in response to the events of World War I, and premiered in 1918. Marking one hundred years since the outbreak of the war, the Schools of Music and Drama bring a fresh perspective to the work with a lively new translation by Liz Diamond, OBIE Award winning Resident Director at Yale Repertory Theatre and Chair of the Directing Department at Yale School of Drama. Diamond will also stage the production. MORE
