WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Marching home on leave, a soldier meets an old man who offers him a book in return for the soldier's violin. The book predicts the stock market, and makes the soldier very rich and successful, but at a price... Written in 1918, the themes of Stravinsky's The Soldier's Tale still echo almost a century later. The Young People's Puppet Theatre's inaugural production of The Soldier's Tale is the culmination of a six-month collaboration with The Purcell School, Bushey.
