OperAvenir performs Rossini opera
as a puppet theatre
Figaro is not only the best barber in town, but also a matchmaker, plotter of intrigues and jack-of-all-trades. With a dose of calculated chaos and many masquerades, he manages to free Rosina from the grasp of her guardian Dr Bartolo and bring her together with the handsome Count Almaviva. In the production by director and puppeteer Nikolaus Habjan, artistic open-mouth puppets step into the limelight. The puppets develop a deep human psyche and become equally matched partners of the singers. The production celebrates the fifteenth anniversary of the opera studio.
