In the operetta “The White Horse Inn” life-sized moving mouth puppets with arm rods represent the six guests of the inn. In this regard “to attend on the guests” becomes a slightly ambiguous meaning. Thus director Ingmar Otto satirizes the secret agreement between staff and tourists of the inn to sell a mock idyll on the one side, and to squander their money to incorporate this fake idyll on the other side.
