Marionette Opera: The Burning House

by Carter Family Marionettes with Music Director Margriet Tindemans and special musical guests
April 29 – May 8, 2011
At the request of Prince Esterhazy, Franz Josef Haydn created this opera especially for The Royal Marionette Theater at Esterhaza Palace. Splendid live baroque music lead by the internationally acclaimed Margriet Tindemans. Exquisite cast and sets by Carter Family Marionettes. The Carter Family presented their opera to sold-out crowds at the Sanssouci Palace Theatre of Frederick the Great. “The Burning House” makes a triumphant return from Europe with a limited engagement of only two-weekends in Seattle. Don’t miss your chance to see this masterpiece of music and marionettes!
