WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Petrushka tells the tragic love story of three puppets performing at a Russian carnival. Petrushka, the clown, falls in love with the winsome Ballerina at first sight. The conniving and rich Moor loves the Ballerina as well, and seduces her with beautiful things. She rejects the earnest advances of Petrushka, who, upset and lonely, confronts the Moor. Have these puppets come to life, or are they merely playing out a story being told? Reality and magic are woven together by the deft hand of Basil Twist, against the backdrop of Stravinsky's classic and moving score.
