By Penny Benson, adapted from the poem by Christina Rossetti Studio Works Series A Puppet Arts Production
The full, exhilarating, creative power of the University of Connecticut’s Puppetry Program will bring an adaptation of Christina Rossetti’s entrancingly atmospheric narrative poem Goblin Market to our studio stage.
Two sisters, in the service of a troubled household, must resist the hypnotic call of seductive goblins who tempt them with luscious fruits and promises of unimagined ecstasies. When one of the sisters is sacrificed to the goblins, her sibling must risk her own life to bargain with the supernatural creatures in order to save her sister from certain demise. With actors, imaginative puppetry and surprising theatrics, Goblin Market promises to weave an enchanting spell.
