The bicentennial observance of Mozart's death, on the day itself came with a happy discovery for at least one of us--the Salzburg Marionette Theatre, which staged Mozart's "Le Nozze di Figaro" Thursday at Ambassador Auditorium in Pasadena. Watching the marionettes evoked a complex, dynamic pleasure. Appreciation shuttled between admiring simulation of lifelike (or "realistic") movement, of which they certainly were capable, and, more frequently, savoring their persuasiveness on their own terms.

Imagine an opera singer whose face and body could convey nearly every nuance of a composer's music. Impossible? For a human, yes. But not for the world-famous Salzburg Marionettes. These little figures--slightly over 2 feet tall--bob and weave, bow and curtsy, fight and dance, hop and fly over obstacles--all to enact and illuminate the music in ways you wouldn't think possible. Don't believe it?

The voices are the voices of such operatic giants as Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, Birgit Nilsson, Cesare Siepi. But the bodies are only 2 1/2 feet tall . . . The Salzburg Marionette Theatre is coming to town, to perform three Mozart operas this weekend at the Irvine Barclay Theatre as part of the Orange County Philharmonic Society's salute to the Mozart Bicentennial Year. For nearly 80 years, these tiny figures have been wowing audiences by enacting operas--mostly by Mozart--to recorded music.

Forty-two years ago, with the premiere of "Aureole," modern dance maverick Paul Taylor created a whole new choreographic subgenre by setting athletic, all-American moves to highfalutin Baroque music. And even though Twyla Tharp, Mark Morris and other modernists have followed his lead, such barocco Taylor masterworks as "Airs," "Esplanade" and "Arden Court" haven't been surpassed.
