Igor Stravinsky’s “The Soldier’s Tale” remains as thought-provoking a piece today as it was in 1918, when it was created just after World War I.

As the third part of a Stravinsky-focused series by the Spring Festival in Tokyo (following “The Firebird” and “Petrushka” in 2012, and “Apollon” and “The Rite of Spring” in 2013), the Russian composer’s theatrical masterpiece provided local audiences with a rare opportunity to attend a performance by New York-based Japanese conductor Shoichi Kubota on March 16 at Tokyo Bunka Kaikan Recital Hall in Ueno Park.
