What an interesting idea !  What size is the "stage" Peter ?

By the way, I've been enjoying the other images from your trip too.

No, I'm not kidding.  And it was great!

The National Marionette Theatre of the Czech Republic regularly performs
Mozart's "Don Giovanni," conducted by a puppet of Mozart himself.  I had not
planned on photographing it, and there was a pictorial sign that could have
been interpreted as either "no cameras with flash," or "no cameras, period."
I noticed several people taking photos with their cellphones, despite
another sign that seemed to say "no cellphones." But the ushers didn't stop
them. So I figured, if they can, I can. So I discretely took pictures during
the second act.  All I had was my 40mm equivalent lens, so I had to crop
drastically, and someone's head obstructed a bit of my view on the right. I
pressed the shutter button 
anyway.   Here's a few of the best shots.

The wronged ladies. Donna Elvira,  Don Ottavio, Donna Anna, and Zerlina,

Donna Elvira implores Don Giovanni to mend his lecherous ways. 
...Leporello has clearly heard it all before.

The Commendatore drags Don Giovanni to Hell

"I will find a better master," sings Leporello (on riser) with the rest of
the cast.

Mozart wants to finish the Epilogue, but the custodian wants to wrap things
up.
