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.
