A thrilling tale of trickery and magic, Igor Stravinsky’s L’Histoire du Soldat is brought to life by an ensemble of musicians from the Curtis Institute of Music. “One of the world’s leading music academies” (BBC Culture), Curtis’s performers team up with beloved actor and narrator John de Lancie, who voices the characters; award-winning performer David Shifrin (Clarinet, Curtis ’71); and prominent recitalist Soovin Kim (Violin, Curtis ’99).
