What do you do when the devil’s on your back? Attack Theatre presents Histoire du Soldat (The Soldier’s Tale), Igor Stravinsky’s timeless tale of greed and temptation. Five dancers and seven musicians bring this story to life through original dance and dialogue to one of the most dynamic chamber music scores of the 20th century.

From one tale of temptation to another, this production will also feature a world-premiere dance to an original commissioned score by Grammy-nominated musician Dave Eggar, performed by Chatham Baroque.
