Schedule of Silhouettes Chamber Ensemble
Soldier Tale by Igor Stravinsky
The talented director Kole Kitanov, the actors Mila Kitanova and Alexander Yordanov, and the musicians from the Silhouettes Chamber Ensemble present to the audience of the City Mark Center for Art the musical-stage work of Igor Stravinsky "The Story of the Soldier" (1918). The timeless messages that music and lyrics convey to us over time have long ago turned the work into a masterpiece. The performance is a unique combination between a musical concert and a puppet theater, which intertwine and complement each other on stage. The music in the show is the magic that revives the plot like a magnifying glass, through which the inner torments of the characters are focused. The story is about a poor soldier and the devil's intervention in his fate. The wicked lurk and tempt him, as he tempts us all. Overwhelmed by poverty, the soldier sells his soul, embodied by the violin, to the devil, and this brings him wealth, but not happiness. He manages to change the course of his destiny by returning the violin stolen from the devil, with the help of his self-confidence, courage and determination.
The dolls in the show are the work of Ilina Stefanova, and the translation of the text from Russian is by Plamen Beikov.
