A new production of Stiftung Mozarteum Salzburg in cooperation with the Salzburg Marionette Theater

The production is based on Mozart's music to "Pantalon et Colombine" and the ballet music "Les pets riens".On the basis for those two trifles the young composer Florian Willeitner for his Pool of Invention Ensemble and American theater-maker Doug Fitch, known for his opera productions, have created a new piece tailored to the unique magical atmosphere of the marionettes.
