MADRIGAL THE MAGPIE PUPPET
A WOODLAND OPERA
CLONTER OPERA THEATRE
The magpie is a single-person puppet, which can either be flown low or mounted on a pole to be a high-flying puppet. There are wire struts in the wings and tail to allow them to quiver in flight. The head is separate from the body to give a full range of movement.
The fabrics are all scraps that were already in Clonter's costume store. The plastic sheet was scraps left over from Heironymous the Owl puppet.
