The Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra partners with Evansville Civic Theatre and Ballet Indiana to present Theatricality “Re-Imagined” by livestream on Saturday, January 16 at 7:00 PM.
This re-imagined concert features The Soldier’s Tale by Igor Stravinsky. The production, staged on the Evansville Civic Theatre stage, combines elements of theater and music in this delightful performance by a small instrumental ensemble, three actors, and two dancers. The 1917 Russian theatrical tale is about a soldier who trades his fiddle to the devil in return for unlimited riches. Temptation abounds, with good and evil entwined in a rhythmic and harmonic struggle for one man’s soul. Stravinsky masterfully incorporates sharp rhythms and biting harmonies to invoke feelings of love, loss, and betrayal.
To purchase $15 livestream tickets, patrons must have a valid email address and can purchase online at the www.evansvillephilharmonic.org or call the EPO ticket office at (812) 425-5050. For questions, the box office is available between 10 AM and 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday.
