Victorian Puppet Opera: Master Peter’s Puppet Show

24 Aug

A Puppet Opera. How could i pass this post opportunity up?

You think such a thing would be by some daring new theater company, at the very least a contemporary work, since the, say, 90s, but no. Mater Peter’s Puppet Show is from 1923, written by the Spanish composer Manueal de Falla.

The opera is a mini-one, running only 27 minutes. It is taken from Don Quixote. In the book, Don Quixote and Sancho witness a puppet show by Master Peter the puppeteer. The opera is that puppet show.

This particular performance is done by Madcap Puppets.

    Holy crap, this is the most awesome thing I have watched in a while. I haven’t read its entirety and have only seen the musical. This makes me want to get a copy.
