MARIONETTES & MUSIC
Music is the language of the marionette.
This applied in the 18th century for the marionette-opera's which Joseph Haydn wrote for the court theatre of Esterhazy, and it applies today for the marionettes appearing in the Amsterdam Marionette Theatre.
We choose for opera's / music theatre which specifically suit the marionettes: a pastoral play by Mozart, an opera-comique by Offenbach, Mozarts 'fairy tale opera' Die Zauberflote.
OPERA-COMIQUE by J. Offenbach:
The Castle in the Air (Le 66 / Die Savoyardenkinder)
MUSIC THEATRE, various composers:
The amazing journey of Doctor Faust
OPERA'S by W.A. Mozart:
The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflote)
The Impresario (Der Schauspieldirektor)
