Stravinsky Double Bill

Renard by Helios Collective

Helios Collective and Constella OperaBallet came together to form a travelling troupe of modern-day bohemians, presenting an evening fusing opera, ballet, and theatre.

The Soldier’s Tale is a musical parable by Igor Stravinsky, to be read, played, and danced. The story tells of a soldier who trades his violin with the devil in exchange for a mysterious book. As the tale unfolds, the soldier and devil devise mischievous schemes to outwit each other.

Stravinsky’s opera-ballet Renard is based on a Russian Folk tale: a comically dark fable that presents a curious series of events played out by farmyard animals. The production featured choreography by Erico Montes of The Royal Ballet.
