We plan to produce big-head puppet children's opera. We already have almost 3 dozen large "big head" human sized and larger puppets and we need to purchase supplies to make more puppets and to pay performers to produce A Woman's Tale, based on the ancient tale of Gawain and the Green Knight. Our long term goal is to have 100 puppets of various kinds - animals, mythical creatures, humans from all over the Earth - who are our standing "theatre ensemble" that we use to do storytelling opera theatre. The puppets that we create for A Woman's Tale will not only allow us to produce this particular story, but will be also become part of our standing ensemble of puppets.
