Franz Schubert's haunting song-cycle comes to life with innovative puppetry and magical theatricality.
This collaboration between classical pianist Azusa Ueno, operatic tenor Dory Schultz, and theatrical director Ben Prusiner takes the audience on a visual journey as we see the world through the eyes of the main character, a love-struck miller. People from his past come to life in the form of objects animated to form beautiful and eerie faces, while shadow puppets ripple in watery images overhead and a blue silk river dances below. The merger of stunning classical music and elegant marionette, found-object and shadow puppetry is a unique event.
Featuring puppeteers Flor Bromley, Chris Gebauer, Nicola McEldowney, Equiano Mosieri, and Elizabeth Spano. Movement by Ryan Brooke Taylor. Puppets created by Ben Prusiner.
