Tanglewood Marionettes, Sleeping Beauty
This performance of the classic tale, Sleeping Beauty begins in the king’s great hall where guests have come to celebrate the birth of Princess Aurora. Then … the wicked witch arrives and yikes!, curses, followed by the possibility of romance. Which will come true? In this performance, a painted story book opens to reveal each scene, which hand-crafted marionettes are brought to life by a master puppeteer. Wednesday, September 13, 10:00 a.m.
