Family marionette performance
Set in the French countryside, The Castle in the Air tells the story of Jeannot and Jeannette, two performers travelling to Paris. After purchasing a lottery ticket from a pedlar they meet, Jeannot becomes very rich. But gaining wealth comes at a cost… it threatens to lead to the loss of not only his dear Jeanette, but also his ideals.
This 1.5-hour family performance features six large wooden marionettes, dressed in elaborate silk costumes. The Castle in the Air is in Dutch, but the musical and visual character of the performances break down any language barriers. An English performance programme is provided.
