'Emperor' and 'Queen'

Puppetworks presents its winter presentations of “The Emperor’s New Clothes” and “The Snow Queen,” two classic fairy tales by Hans Christian Andersen.

Adapted for the marionette stage by Puppetworks’ Artistic Director Nicolas Coppola, “The Emperor’s New Clothes” tells the tale of a vain emperor who buys a set of ‘invisible’ clothes, only to march down the street in his underwear. The play is accompanied by the music of Dmitri Shostakovich.

“The Snow Queen” tells the story of a mysterious lady who throws ice into the heart of a boy so that he becomes cold and mean. The story is accompanied by Norwegian folk tunes and other music from Norwegian composer Edvard Greig.“

The Emperor’s New Clothes” and “The Snow Queen” are being shown Saturdays and Sundays, now to March 28, with additional performances all of Presidents’ Week, February 15-19. All performances are at 12:30 & 2:30 p.m. and are held at Puppetworks, 338 Sixth Avenue at Fourth Street in Park Slope.

Admission is $7 for children, $8 for adults, and $5 each for groups of 20 or more.
