The original Petrouchka was a puppet at a carnival who discovered he had a soul and fell in love with a ballerina bimbo. It didn't end well.
Our 2011 production of Petrouchka is a world premiere adaptation from Nicolo Fonte that may or may not involve an actual puppet. But that doesn't mean we can't enjoy this creepy puppet interpretation of Stravinsky's Petrouchka.
