Close Quarters: Episode 7
"The Soldier's Tale" (pt. 1) + Spiva
Stravinsky’s theatrical work “L’Histoire du soldat” (The Soldier’s Tale), written for septet and three actors, is about a soldier named Joseph who is tricked by the devil to sell his fiddle for financial gain. Inspired by the work, LACO Artistic Advisor and composer Derrick Spiva Jr. utilizes the same combination of instruments and actors for his LACO commission, “Mother of Bravery.” Spiva’s text explores the path from fear to bravery, a path of self-discovery and commitment to everyday brave small and big actions.
