Hawkes Bay NZ Water trail

I went to a short show of Sicilian puppets this evening. Plenty of clanking swords and stamping feet, as Orlando and Rinaldo took turns fighting each other for the love of Angelica, and slicing up various Saracens and other combatants. Not particularly subtle plot line. I wish they'd done the story where Orlando goes crazy when he discovers that Angelica has married some low ranking nobody. It would be great to see a naked puppet fighting all the animals in the woods and bellowing. I read Orlando Furioso many years ago, and it's one big soap opera.
