Petrouchka - A Musical Marionette Ballet


This extraordinary performance features 23 marionette characters, telling the story of the downtrodden puppet 'Petrouchka'. The marionettes boldly dance their way into the hearts of the audience as they perform to Igor Stravinsky's celebrated piece 'Petrouchka' live with an orchestra.

The design and execution of this performance is a 'tour de force' for puppeteers Heather and Darryll Taylor, choreographer Mary Lou Martin and costume designer Jacqueline Allen.

The show premiered in Lubbock Texas, April 30 and May 1, 1999 with conductor Albert-George Schram and the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra. The piece received a standing ovation each evening, and rave reviews from audience members who came to see the marionettes again backstage.

Rumpelstiltskin


Maritime Marionettes breathes life into an ageless folktale as magically as Rumpelstiltskin spins straw into gold. Rumpelstiltskin is the tale of a poor miller's daughter who becomes trapped in her father's lie: that she can spin straw into gold.

Rumpelstiltskin uses seven puppets: the king, a courtier, the miller, the rabbit, Rumpelstiltskin and two versions of the miller's daughter - one in plain home spun and the other in her royal garb. The 50 minute performance is filled with colour, magic and excitement; from the appearance of Rumpelstiltskin to his incredible demise. With brilliant lighting and surging classical music in the background, the show is a wonderful experience for everyone to enjoy.
