Shadow theater and live music, popular highlights of the Javanese village at the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition, come to the galleries of the Peabody Museum! Enjoy a contemporary performance based on scenes from Mozart’s The Magic Flute, featuring intricate leather puppets and the sonorous gong-chime instruments of Harvard's Javanese-style gamelan orchestra. Touch beautiful hand-painted puppets, try out the instruments, and sample coffees from the islands of Indonesia.
