Malkin is delightful as the crotchety old demon, but the standoff between her and the puppet lacks suspense. The pas-de-deux between the devil and the dupe seems like a fait accompli from the start. If the chap played a bigger part in his own destruction, the stakes might seem higher. But the devil just keeps changing the terms of their arrangement, and so as soon as the puppet falls for the fairy princess (Maffre again), it’s clear where the romance will lead. But most significantly, Maffre and Ross have yet to fine-tune the marriage of theater, music and dance here. Right now, the dance overshadows everything else.
