The Artistry of the Opera dei Pupi

Yesterday, our last official day of our Enchanting Sicily tour, we spent the evening in Palermo seeing the UNESCO recognized Opera dei Pupi at the Argento family’s theater. I’ve become such a fan of this whimsical form of entertainment! When you allow yourself to be a kid, you will be amazed by Orlando’s adventures and the puppeteers’ amazing craftsmanship and artistry. Pictured is one of the Argento sons, who is the fourth generation working in this theater.

After the show, we enjoyed a pizza party with my cousins in Santa Flavia along with live Sicilian folk music with Alfredo, Totò, and Ettore … Head over to our Experience Sicily Facebook page for some highlights!
