Directed by Muriel Maffre and Tom Ross
"Igor Stravinsky's music [In The Soldier's Tale] is endlessly beguiling and the actors deliver their parts with captivating conviction... it's a delight."
-Robert Hurwitt, San Francisco Chronicle
An enchanting collaboration between Tom Ross and former SF Ballet principal Muriel Maffre, this re-imagined production of Igor Stravinsky's visionary work The Soldier's Tale features four musicians, two actors, a life-size puppet, and Maffre dancing the role of the king's daughter. The Soldier's Tale is based on a Russian folk tale about a soldier who makes a deal with the devil, trading his fiddle for a book that predicts the future.
