In 1918, composer Igor Stravinsky, writer Charles-Ferdinand Ramuz and conductor Ernest Ansermet decided to create a travelling musical production that would profoundly influence the music of the 20th century. Their work entitled Histoire du soldat brought together various forms of expression in what was an innovative new art form. This documentary by Michel Van Zele celebrates this literary and musical creation, revisited in 2018 by the Opéra de Lyon and the Opéra de Lausanne. Featuring archival images, animations, interviews and magnificent music, this documentary takes us on a journey back in time.
