Tale Retold, by Emerald City Music

September 13, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm


Hey Seattle, we’re Emerald City Music, the “beacon for the casual-classical movement presenting high-level musicians in a totally unstuffy environment” (CityArts Magazine). We’re the eclectic, open-bar destination for Seattle’s music lovers to dive deep into the world’s biggest genre of music alongside an unbelievable cast of top-tier musicians.

September 13 (8pm), old meets new in the retelling of Stravinsky’s kitschy Soldier’s Tale. A cast of NYC Ballet dancers join forces with librettist Mark Campbell (award-winning writer of Seattle Opera’s The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs). The night caps off with an edgy world-premiere by Seattle’s own Angelique Poteat entitled “Her Story of a Soldier”.

Poteat Her Story of a Soldier, World Premiere Commission (2019)
Stravinsky The Soldier’s Tale, Retold (1918, arr. 2019)

Cast: David Prottas, dancer (soldier) • Taeler Cyrus, dancer (princess) • Georgina Pazcoguin, dancer (devil) • Michael Barrett, director • Mark Campbell, librettist • Josh Bergasse, choreographer • Kristin Lee, violin • Alex Fitterstein, clarinet • Steve Burns, trumpet • Jon Rojak, trombone • Michael Thurber, bass • Oleksiy Zakharov, Bassoon • Ian Rosenbaum, percussion

“Single-handedly raising Seattle’s profile in the classical music world, this series has major performers and composers in a chamber music setting. The venue, the back of a coffee and chocolate shop, increases the salon sensibility.” – ECM Audience member

Tickets: $45, includes open bar.
Students with valid ID: $10
