MASTER PETER'S PUPPET SHOW
"If anyone can save this almost forgotten puppet opera from the shadows it's the puppeteer Basil Twist" - The New Yorker.
Master Peter's Puppet Show by Manuel De Falla is one of the most significant classical composition of the 20th century written for puppet theatre. In this collaboration with New York's celebrated Eos Orchestra, life size puppets interact within a show of shifting realities. Don Quixote's rescue of a puppet maiden is told through the interplay of fluid scenery and Bunraku-style and rod puppets. Master Peter's Puppet Show was commissioned by Eos Orchestra and premiered at The Ethical Cultural Society in New York City in 2002.
