Igor Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress is a cynical but sympathetic tale of a young man’s fall. Young Tom Rakewell’s quiet life with his sweetheart Anne is turned upside down when the mysterious Nick Shadow comes to his door with whispers of wealth and luxury. But Nick soon finds out that the Devil finds work for idle hands, and that the promises of London life aren’t what they seem.
