Tarocco: A Soldier's Tale 

When: Sat., Aug. 13, 7:30 p.m. 2016
Price: $28



We've noted the recent Tarot trend in Durham, and perhaps the magic in the air subliminally drew Asheville's The Fox & Beggar Theater toward the Triangle on its first tour—though it landed one city over, in Raleigh. Tarocco: A Soldier's Tale is the story of a World War I infantryman in enemy territory who comforts a dying friend with stories inspired by images in the Tarocco Piemontese, an Italian precursor to the modern Tarot deck. This sad scenario is tempered by the wonder of the spectacle, a contemporary hybrid of commedia dell'arte, cirque, dance, puppet theater, animation, and more. A preview video on Duke Energy Center's website shows that a vivid, high-quality production, especially for a community-funded nonprofit, is in the cards. —Brian Howe
