20|21 SPRING SEASON
The Arkansas Symphony Orchestra is proud to present Igor Stravinsky’s brilliant theatrical work “The Soldier’s Tale” in partnership with the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts and Ballet Arkansas. Immerse yourself in the World War I-era story of a young soldier who sells his violin to the devil in exchange for access to unlimited wealth. Needless to say, it doesn't go well. 7 musicians, 3 actors, and a ballet dancer present this whimsical yet poignant tale, set to music by one of the greatest composers of the 20th century. Performances will be held on April 10 & 11, 2021, at the Robinson Center in downtown Little Rock for a limited invited audience. The concert will be available virtually on April 17: Musical direction by Geoffrey Robson and stage direction by Katie Campbell. World-premiere choreography by Ballet Arkansas' Executive and Artistic Director, Michael Fothergill.
