Quotes & Highlights

The marionettes “bob and weave, bow and curtsy, fight and dance, hop and fly over obstacles—all to enact and illuminate the music in ways you wouldn’t think possible.” —Los Angeles Times

Description

Mozart’s beloved opera The Magic Flute is performed by this astounding company of marionettes under the direction of Gretl Aicher, granddaughter of founder Anton Aicher. The Salzburg Marionette Theatre is known for performing timeless 18th- and 19th-century operas to recordings of some of the world’s leading orchestras and singers. The band of 12 skilled puppeteers manipulate elaborately costumed marionettes — each more than two feet tall — in stunning, often hilarious physical feats with an amazingly life-like range of expression.
