These are spectacular, Ruthie. I saw Mozart's The Magic Flute performed by the Salzburg Marionette Theatre, and I was amazed. But this takes puppetry to another level. Thanks for sharing this.

Oh I remember seeing Royal de Luxe performing 'Le Peplum' years ago as part of the street theatre component of the Perth International Arts Festival...it was INCREDIBLE...they even had the theatrical version of 'smellavision'...wonderful, wonderful stuff!
