Notes & Reviews:

Dramatic productions with marionettes, puppets, and music have always enjoyed great popularity in Austria. Between 1773 and 1779 there was a marionette theater at the summer residence of Prince Nikolaus Esterhazy at Esterhaza (in today's Fertod, Hungary), and at the time, as is generally known, Joseph Haydn was the principal music director at this court. Although it is today a little-known fact, Haydn too wrote operas for puppet theater, including Die Feuersbrunst oder das abgebrannte Haus (The Conflagration or The Burned House) of 1776. A genuine discovery in honor of the Haydn Year 2009!
