Quanzhou Marionette Theater

Music, song and puppetry unite as the talented puppeteers and musicians of the Quanzhou Marionette Theater perform selections from Chinese folk tales.

October 21, 2009 7:30pm to 12:00am

This concert is part of the Musical Journeys Through China series.

Here is one of China’s great cultural treasures, featuring puppeteers who train for 20 years to master their art. With singing and musical accompaniment, the acrobatic pageantry of the marionettes—some with 20 strings or more—depicts famous Chinese legends and folktales.
