Description of Opera In Focus

This opera house is like nothing you've ever seen. William B. Fosser's Puppet Production "Opera in Focus" presents fully staged scenes from well-known operas and musicals in miniature, that is, performed by 16-inch, lifelike rod puppets. Each performance runs about one hour in length and may offer between three and five scenes, depending on the length of the individual scene. A narration of the action by actor Tony Mockus precedes each scene. The puppets are manipulated from below the stage floor and are capable of very lifelike action and dramatic gestures for which opera singers are so famous. A demonstration of the operation of the puppets and a tour of the highly technical backstage area follows each performance. Although the puppet opera takes place on a stage only five feet wide and two feet deep, the illusion of live opera prevails. The puppet opera performances are capable of charming a wide range of audiences - from the lover of opera to the adult or child simply fascinated by the fine art of puppetry.
