The Soldier´s Tale is a stage piece that Igor Stravinsky created from a text by ‎Charles Ferdinand Ramuz. The work was conceived in 1917, while exiled in Switzerland in the ‎midst of the Great War. After the great ballets, it is a precedent of neoclassical works such as ‎Pulcinella. Designed for a small group of performers with the idea that it could easily tour ‎around the country like a small circus troupe, The Soldier's Tale is a staged Faustian tale. A ‎soldier who plays the violin, sells his soul to the devil (represented by the violin) in exchange ‎for a book that allows him to know the future.‎
Three dancers on stage give body and voice to the characters of this work, which questions ‎the turning-point between good and evil in a society that has rendered us insatiable and ‎where temptation is all around us.‎
