Stravinsky’s Histoire du Soldat is a Faustian story of a soldier who trades his fiddle with the Devil in exchange for a magic book. The work contains some of Stravinsky’s most colorful music and is a piece where tango, waltz, and ragtime rub elbows with Lutheran chorales. Ensemble ACJW—called “fun, fearless, and effing great,” by Time Out New York—performs this devilishly entertaining work in the finale to its Carnegie Hall series.
‘Metromaniacs’ at Shakespeare Theatre Company Lansburgh Theatre
Mistaken identity, misplaced ardor and a fight for true love ensues in David Ives’ adaptation of Piron’s classic 1738 French farce. Add to the chaos some scheming servants, pseudonyms and disguises and there is much to untangle before love-plots are resolved and a happy ending found.
Continuing the successful partnership between Artistic Director Michael Kahn and David Ives, STC presents the third play in Ives’ series of rediscovered French comedy masterpieces, following The Heir Apparent (2011) and The Liar (2010). A world-premiere translation and adaptation, Ives’ presentation of Alexis Piron's The Metromaniacs once again applies his brilliant sense of comedic timing to a lost classic. Michael Goldstrom performs as Mondor.
