Operatic puppet

Sometimes, a picture is truly worth a thousand words...

Walking down the street today, I heard opera music. I glanced around, and then realized that this guy's act was to make his puppet "sing" and "dance" to the opera. Amazing. Who doesn't need/want to see that in the middle of the day?

I couldn't help but wonder if one would see this sight in other major cities. Philly has a certain grittiness that may encourage this type of street entertainment.

I gave him a dollar, and then he posed while I took a picture of him and his puppet. Fantastic moment.
