Friends of Chamber Music: Salzburg Marionette Theater with pianist Orion Weiss
The College of the Arts welcomes Community Partner Friends of Chamber Music.
Recreating a masterwork of theater and music, the Salzburg Marionette Theater teams up with the brilliant American pianist Orion Weiss to perform a program inspired by Debussy’s La Boîte à joujou.
In a rave review about this program The New York Times said, “Debussy may have intended ‘The Toy Box’ for children, but the score is sophisticated, subtle, often quiet and harmonically wandering with Asian-inspired accents. The puppetry was wonderful . . .”
