Iron Bridal Feast – 1

This is the shadow puppet segment in the show when Agamemnon and his family reenact the Trojan War. The shadow puppets originally served as set decoration pieces on the fireplace and then were pulled from the mantle for a “spontaneous” performance with puppets and live-action actors. The shadow show was also accompanied by live foley using the dinnerware on the table.
