Monday evening ……

September 29, 2009

After dinner with Susannah, i went to visit the famous Saltzberg Marionette Theatre to see ‘The Magic Flute’. It was magical and enchanting and far better than i was expecting as it seems to be mainly for tourists. But the manipulation was superb and in the picture box frame, the scenery and effects worked as in a mechanical toy theatre. The only thing that was tiresome was of course they don’t really sing, ie move their mouths to the soundtrack and a projection kept flashing up to tell us what was happening in the performance, which was unnecessary. However, a wonderfull end to the day.
