We are thrilled to welcome the Salzburg Marionette Theatre to Kingston, 60 years after their first tour to Canada! They join the talented American pianist Orion Weiss to create a fascinating music/theatre program. In the first half of the program, Weiss will perform music by Schumann. He will be joined by the artists of the Marionette Theatre. The artistry of both the performers and the craftspeople who create the world of Debussy’s The Toybox (La Boîte à joujoux) is sure to delight audiences of all ages.
The puppetry was wonderful, from Pulcinella’s spidery extending arms to the delicacy of the doll’s on-point ballet dance to the remarkably affecting sequence in which she nurses the soldier, his head lying gently in her lap.

The gods of music must be smiling upon Orion Weiss. Here was playing of inspired virtuosity, but with bountiful thought behind the technical strength.
