One of the last remaining full-time professional marionette troupes in Europe, the Salzburg Marionette Theatre returns to BYU for an encore presentation of their beloved production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's The Sound of Music. Performed in the intimacy of the Pardoe Theatre by 24-inch puppets against a lavish, miniature set, recorded voices and music bring the charm of this old-world tradition to life in a sensational way.

Featuring a skilled ensemble of behind-the-scenes professional puppeteers, the performances present the charm and wonder of a long-standing European tradition in a fresh, exciting way.

Jeffrey Martin, producer of performing arts for the College of Fine Arts and Communications and presenter of the BRAVO! series, explains the significance of the Salzburg Marionette Theatre performing at BYU.

"The ephemeral nature of live theatrical performance is exactly what makes these performances so special and unique. Watching the master puppeteers of the Salzburg Marionette Theatre right here in Provo may very well be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity," said Martin. "There is perhaps no better way to experience the charm of The Sound of Music than through the unique lens and intricate artistry of one of the world's most time-honored puppet companies."

This performance is sponsored Zion's Bank and BRAVO! Professional Performing Arts at BYU, the university's concert series that hosts world-renowned guest artists from across the globe.
