This fall, the cat in the spats is back, when Gotham Chamber Opera revives El gato con botas (Puss in Boots), Xavier Montsalvatge's take on the classic story of a mangy feline with magical talents. Can Puss win the princess's hand for his master? Can he outwit the evil ogre? Don't miss the amazing Bunraku puppetry that turns a fairy tale into an evening of "tuneful," "magical," "exquisite," and eye-opening opera. Gotham’s production will be directed by Moisés Kaufman (The Laramie Project, 33 Variations) and features puppetry from London’s Blind Summit Theater. Featuring Ginger Costa-Jackson/Karin Mushegain, Andrea Carroll, Craig Verm, Kevin Burdette, and Stefanos Koroneos.

 

The Teatro’s interior contains scenes from children’s literature, including a mural of “Puss in Boots” designed in 1921 by the gifted illustrator and painter, Willy Pogany (1882-1955).

The Toothache Of King Farfăˇn  | Open: 05/29/10 Close: 05/29/10
The Society of the Educational Arts/La Sociedad Educativa de las Artes, (SEA) under the artistic direction of Dr. Manuel A. Morán, is proud to present La Muela del Rey Farfán/The Toothache of King Farfán.

This “Zarzuela” Spanish operetta for children, tells the story of the lessons learned by a stubborn King who refused to love and respect others. Over 40 life-size puppets, singers, and musicians bring to life this timeless story from the early 1900’s.

The original book for THE TOOTHACHE OF KING FARFÁN was written by the legendary Quintero Brothers, known as the "Golden Boys of Theater in Madrid". The original score by Amadeo Vives was lost, forcing producers throughout the world to commission contemporary composers to create scores for each production. This new production features a score by Manuel Morán and Ivan Alexander Bautista.
