Sean Jones Celebrates L'Histoire du Soldat @ 100

This Herbst Theatre at the San Francisco War Memorial Building concert brings SF Performances Artist-in-Residence, trumpeter/composer/educator/activist Sean Jones, violinist Regina Carter, narrator Nicholas Phan and a few talented friends together for a jazz-inflected performance of L'Histoire du Soldat (The Soldier's Tale), plus an all-star set of jazz favorites. Stravinsky's hybrid theatrical work, created on the eve of Europe's Jazz Age, was first performed on this date in 1918. Based on a Russian folktale about the choice between greed and happiness, L'Histoire features seven instruments and a narrator that tell the story of an AWOL soldier's encounter with the devil.
