This fall, the cat in the spats is back, when Gotham Chamber Opera revives El gato con botas (Puss in Boots), Xavier Montsalvatge’s take on the classic story of a mangy feline with magical talents. Can Puss win the princess’s hand for his master? Can he outwit the evil ogre? Don’t miss the amazing Bunraku puppetry that turns a fairy tale into an evening of “tuneful,” “magical,” “exquisite,” and eye-opening opera. Gotham’s production will be directed by Moisés Kaufman (The Laramie Project, 33 Variations) and features puppetry from London’s Blind Summit Theater. Featuring Ginger Costa-Jackson/Karin Mushegain, Andrea Carroll, Craig Verm, Kevin Burdette, and Stefanos Koroneos.
The Teatro’s interior contains scenes from children’s literature, including a mural of “Puss in Boots” designed in 1921 by the gifted illustrator and painter, Willy Pogany (1882-1955).
