The little soldier

Histoire du soldat is a melodrama created by Igor Stravinsky in 1917, based on a text by Charles Ferdinand Ramuz. The Little Soldier will follow the story, but with a few variations: a soldier on leave returns to the town where her father and fiancée are waiting for her - it's not the Great War, it's the Algerian War. Along the way, she meets the Devil and swaps her violin for a magic book that gives her everything. When she arrives home, no one recognizes her, and she can no longer be happy, because even if the devil's book gives her "everything", "everything" is also "nothing": she should have known how to choose.
