Roger Waters performing in 2015 Bridgehampton Festival Print E-mail

Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival logoIn its third decade, the Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival in New York, USA, has just announced this year's extensive programme, and amongst the highlights are a performance of The Soldier's Tale, Stravinsky's theatrical piece about a wayward, fiddle-playing soldier and his dealings with the devil, narrated by Roger Waters, using English-language texts that Waters himself has adapted.

The Soldier's Tale, featuring Waters, is the Festival's annual Wm. Brian Little Concert (named after the late BCMF board member and this year dedicated to the memory of Walter Channing) and takes place on August 14th at 6:30pm under a tent on the stunning grounds of the Channing Sculpture Garden adjacent to the Channing Daughters Winery; wine and hors d'oeuvres are served before the hour-long program. It should be an evening not to be missed. Arguably the 20th century's greatest composer, Stravinsky wrote The Soldier's Tale as the catastrophe of WWI was coming to a close, while Roger Waters's updated text speaks to today's audiences.

Tickets go on sale on May 11th, costing $100 (General Admission) and $150 (Reserved Seating) and may be purchased on the festival's website, www.bcmf.org, or by calling 212-741-9403 before July 22nd; after July 23rd call 631-537-6368.
