About the Piece
Puppet Show explores the concept of assigning character roles to performers with, in this case, each Clarinetist becoming the Puppet or the Puppeteer. This three movement piece, follows the story of a Puppet craving to be free from its master. The first movement, showcases a comedic and rebellious entrance by the Puppet. But, the Puppeteer swiftly commands authority and demonstrates that they are the one in charge. The second movement explores the Puppet’s longing to be free and real. The final movement is adventurous and exciting, as the Puppet breaks free from its strings and becomes free at last.
