OperAvenir performs Rossini opera as puppet theatre
The wild folding puppets return: after its success in 2022 at the Schauspielhaus, the extraordinary opera studio production conquers the Grand Stage in Nikolaus Habjan's staging. Side by side with the life-size puppets, a young ensemble performs Rossini's repertoire classic as an entertaining confusion play full of speed and poetry. Musicians of the Sinfonieorchester Basel play in chamber music formation on stage.
There are only winners in this brilliant, imaginative, witty, but at moments also weird evening.
Together with the dramaturgy, Basel's Kulturhaus Bider & Tanner has been curating the book table for our plays for many years. Now this selection of books, CDs, DVDs, catalogues or even sheet music can be accessed at any time in the online shop. It's worth browsing regularly.
With the kind support of Helvetia
