Long Beach Opera presents a double-bill
An American Soldier’s Tale/A Fiddler’s Ta
By Igor Stravinsky & Wynton Marsalis
Sunday May 4 @ 7:00 PM
Saturday May 10 @ 2:00 PM
Center Theater, Long Beach
This double-bill boasts fact and fable – sinister parables brimming with foxtrots, rags, marches and a healthy dose of Dixieland. In Marsalis’ Faustian allegory, a young, upstart musician strikes a devilish deal, biting off more than she can chew… Kurt Vonnegut audaciously reimagines Stravinsky’s Soldier’s Tale into a vexing story of American wartime deserters.
