About The Steadfast Tin Soldier

Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s "The Steadfast Tin Soldier," ensemble member Mary Zimmerman ("Metamorphoses," "Treasure Island") fashions an extravagant and exhilarating spectacle. The unlikely adventure of a little tin soldier, brimming with love and unblinking bravery, is infused with Zimmerman’s dazzling blend of storytelling through image and movement, accompanied by live musicians. Unsuspecting travelers make unexpected discoveries in this luminous tale, destined to enchant any and all of us not made of tin.
