ミュンヒハウゼン男爵の冒険 / THE MAD ADVENTURES OF BARON VON MUNCHHAUSEN
シアター・ジョーカー / Teater Joker
Baron von Munchhausen is a braggart of the best, or worst, kind! He has flown on canon balls, pulled himself out of the swamp by his ponytail, been chased by a pack of 300 wolves, fallen straight through Earth and said hello to the god Vulcan on his way, flown all the way to the moon on a birds back and much , MUCH more. The Baron's burlesque boasts and bravado are virtually custom-made for the Teater Joker universe, centered around playful humans and children's imagination. The baron travels to the moon, to Russia, to Turkey, always by incredible means.
Join us on a fantastic journey into the magical world of the Baron!
