SALZBURG MARIONETTES THEATRE presents
A MIDSUMMER NIGHTS DREAM
Tickets: $26.00 general/$23.00 senior/$16.00 student or child
After twenty years, during which a famous operatic tradition was established, the Salzburg Marionettes Theatre has come back to a production with spoken dialogue. The choice was Shakespeare's A Midsummer Nights Dream and it is full of fantasy, enchantment and a simply captivating performance. Founded in 1913, these puppeteers have woven their spell around the globe with entrancing performances of fairy tale ballets, and more prominently, Mozart operas, but in this performance this will use the classic The Mendelssohn music.
