Summer Road Trip 2006 - Salzburg

These are photos from the surprisingly compact city of Salzburg. Petite, yet so complex in its culture and music. It was definitely the year of Mozart! We went to this marionette theatre and saw a performance of Die Entfuhrung aus dem Serail or The Abduction from the Seraglio. It was the first time any of us had seen an opera and with the help of the subtitles, it was very interesting. The marionettes were incredible...about 3 feet tall and as impeccably costumed as a real opera might be. We heard a rehearsal of the nightly organ recital in the cathedral and took a tour of the Mozart home.
