Histoire du Soldat: An Artistic Triumph!

We are thrilled that Histoire du Soldat (Soldier’s Tale) turned out to be such an artistic success!

The near-capacity audience at JCCC’s Polsky Theatre were treated to a rare presentation of Igor Stravinsky’s musical and theatrical work in the way he conceived it and first performed it almost 100 years ago.

In addition to a positive review at KCMetropolis, some of the audience comments included:

  • “The first half was the wonderful artistry I always expect. The Histoire presentation was a terrific collaboration much enjoyed.”
  • “It was an amazing concert with so many talented artists involved.”
  • “The up close intimacy of dancer and musicians – so attentive and responsive. Like the best jazz.”

Thank you to Emily Behrman and the staff of the JCCC Peforming Arts Series, our collaborators, and most importantly, our audience for making the evening so memorable.
