Summary

This performance will marry opera and puppet art in a series of symbolically connected scenes of Mozart’s five most famous operas – “Don Giovanni”, “Thus do they all”, “The magic flute”, “The marriage of Figaro”, “The abduction from the Seraglio”. The eternal topics of love, jealousy and infidelity are a good reason for the puppet actors’ imagination and creativity to interpret and manipulate all situations recreated by the opera singers. This is one unexpected and emotional vision of the known arias, duets, trios and quartets. The expression of improvised puppets come to life – clothes, suitcases, shoes in a panoptic of images under the sound of Mozart’s immortal music.
