Visit: Salzburg Marionette Theater, Schwarzstrasse 24 Mozarteum Complex, Salzburg 5020 Austria
In this unique, baroque, audience hall with 350 seats, there have been operas, musicals, plays, and fairy tales performed here such as the one showcased here: The Sound of Music - "A delightful surprise from start to finish" - The New York Times. Performed in English, and subtitled in various languages. The duration is 1 hour and 45 minutes.
The Salzburg Marionette Theatre employs 12 puppeteers trained in a wide variety of trades and professions. Qualities common to all of them are musicality, manual skill, and the ability to empathize with the various characters in order to bring the marionettes alive on stage. The Salzburg Marionette Theatre has evolved its own technique, which is used as a model by many marionette theaters worldwide. The puppeteers’ training, which takes place exclusively in the theater itself, demands just as much time and perseverance as learning to play a musical instrument.
Shows are subject to seasonality and won't all be available at one time. Be sure to check back to see what new shows will be playing next.
