Duke Oldřich & Washerwoman Božena, the True Story
directed by VIT HOREJS
A non-traditional staging of a 374 year-old marionette play based on the story of love at first sight of the 11th century Duke Oldřich, who braved stout opposition for friend and foe alike to marry the exquisitely fair washerwoman Božena, but forgot to mention some details of his own marital status to his beloved. The two legendary lovers are truthfully represented by fine hand-carved marionettes and life-like mechanicals fashioned expertly two centuries ago from the choicest linden wood; their manipulators in period costumes are artfully composed in flesh and blood.
