Mexico’s legendary puppet company, MARIONETAS DE LA ESQUINA, returns to Miami with SLEEPING BEAUTY DREAMS, a new production sure to thrill and delight South Florida families. After three consecutive sold-out seasons, the troupe will present their special brand of dynamic live puppetry and riveting storytelling on Saturday, May 11 at 11 a.m., 2 p.m., and 5 p.m. and on Sunday, May 12 at 2 p.m. in the intimate Carnival Studio Theater (inside the Ziff Ballet Opera House). Both 2 p.m. performances will be presented in Spanish, and the Saturday 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. performances will be presented in English.
Sleeping Beauty Dreams reimagines the famous princess as an overprotected daughter looking for a way to break free of her castle walls in order to search for true love…and her true self. Award-winning playwright Amaranta Leyva’s contemporary take on this classic tale, coupled with Marionetas De La Esquina’s humorous storytelling and whimsical puppetry, awake this sleeping beauty princess as never before.
