Pulling their strings

Experience Mozart like you never have before when the Salzburg Marionettes perform The Magic Flute. The troupe of puppeteers is from the famous Salzburg Marionette Theatre in Austria, and they stand above the stage, controlling near-life-size puppets with a variety of strings as the puppets perform operas, ballets and other interpretive dance. The troupe will also perform a one-hour abbreviated version of Engelbert Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel.

The Salzburg Marionettes will perform 7:30 p.m.-9:30 p.m. Saturday at Shriver Hall, 3400 Charles St. Admission is $19-$39. Tickets and information: Call 410-516-7164 or go to
