Rozamunda of the Turjak


This show was made at the bicentennial of the Slovene poet France Prešeren’s birth. In style of traditional European puppet heroes from the 18th century (Punch, Pulcinella etc.) it portrays in a humourous, yet sometimes brutish way a story about a vain girl Rozamunda, who sends her groom to a distant land of Bosnia to find and bring a beautiful girl Lejla.

The show with classical hand puppets is suitable for open-doors as can be performed in a carriage, typical for travelling puppeteers of that period.
