Event Notes


A Soldier, a Fiddle, and a Diabolical Deal with the Devil

The KSO and WCT join forces to bring you Igor Stravinksy's fiendish theatrical work The Soldier’s Tale. Conceived during the Spanish Flu, this reimagined production will entertain audiences in a new digital format, over a hundred years later. WCT's Artistic Director James MacDonald takes on three roles, including the devil himself. Lauren Okano dances the role of the Princess, joined onstage by a septet of musicians from the Kamloops Symphony, led by the fiery Dina Gilbert. WCT Production Manager Bill Chabassol will also be creating a hellish landscape with lighting.

Just as Stravinsky made artistic changes out of necessity, audience members are invited to join the KSO and WCT in discovering new ways of engaging. See The Soldier’s Tale as you like it:

For those who would prefer a big screen experience, the performance will be shown at the Paramount Theatre on Sunday, September 27 at 1:00 pm and again at 4:00 pm. Each of these showings at the Paramount will be limited to a 50-person capacity.
