As today’s Groupon proves, the underrated art form of puppetry can make for an interesting first date, entertain the babies you were hired to sit on, or rekindle your childlike imagination after prolonged exposure to reality and reality TV. Witness the magic of world-renowned puppeteer Basil Twist as he performs in Master Peter’s Puppet Show on Saturday, January 16, at 8 p.m. at the The Phoenix Symphony’s Symphony Hall. You’ll get half off your choice of three main floor ticket prices at $16 ($32 value), $21 ($42 value), or $31 ($62 value).

Twist’s January 16 show will devote itself to the exploits of Don Quixote, using life-size bunraku-style and rod puppets against fluid scenery to illustrate the shifting realities of everyone’s favorite quixotic knight. The evening is accompanied by authentic Mexican and Peruvian folk music composed by Silvestre Revueltas and Gabriel Lena Frank.

San Francisco native and New York resident Basil Twist, a third-generation puppeteer, is the only American to graduate from premier puppetry program École Supérieure Nationale des Arts de la Marionnette in Charleville-Mézières, France. The celebrated performer is a Guggenheim Fellowship recipient, a United States Artists Fellow, and won a Bessie Award in 1997 for his talents. Twist’s new works continue to develop the craft of puppetry with a focus on live music.

This Groupon is good for one night only, but you may purchase multiple Groupons to accommodate your entire collection of mischievous marionettes.

We attended the Rodgers and Hammerstein Revue. It could not have been better, and we frequent Broadway and London shows. The orchestra was perfect, the cast as good as it gets. The only negative was the program contained no information on the terrific cast. Who were they? I would love... Read More

"Good orchestra "
First time at a symphony. We watched the Phoenix Symphony perform Rogers and Hammerstein. The orchestra was in tune tonight, with several lively numbers, such as South Pacific and Oklahoma. The comic relief on stage (stage actors) had a cute schtick but it quickly got tiresome and I long... Read More
