This puppet company, acclaimed for their artistry, grace and refinement brings two shows to BlackRock. Both are a series of vignettes set to music by such composers as Vivaldi, Strauss and Beethoven. “Simple Gifts,” at 1:00, is shorter and light-hearted with subjects that engage a family audience. “Life in Motion,” at 8:00, is longer and has more varying tones and themes appropriate for a wider range of ages. Following the 1:00 show, the puppeteers will demonstrate how the marionettes work. Following the 8:00 show, enjoy a Q&A with the puppeteers.
