Lockhart will present a talk on composer Igor Stravinsky’s “The Soldier’s Tale,” illustrated by periodic interludes of music performed by a group of seven musicians.
The 1918 theatrical Russian parable meant to be “read, played and danced” tells the tale of a soldier who trades his fiddle to the devil for a book that predicts the future of the economy.
The event is presented by the Northern Essex Community College Foundation, Inc.; the Women of NECC and the NECC Alumni Association. Proceeds will benefit NECC’s Endowment Fund.
Tickets are $35 and are available by calling the NECC Institutional Advancement events line at 978-556-3870 or by visiting www.mvarts.info.
