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 fairytales that have occurred here such as:

The Magic Flute - Probably Mozart's best known opera, staged here for young and old in a short version. In German, subtitled in various languages. Duration: 1-hour.

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 emphathise with the various characters in order to bring alive the marionettes on the stage. The Salzburg Marionette Theatre has evolved its own technique, which is used as a model by many marionette theatres worldwide. The puppeteers’ training, which takes place exclusively in the theatre 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.

Ganz tolle und empfehlenswerte Aktivität in Salzburg! Wir haben die Kurzfassung der Zauberflöte besucht (30€ pro Ticket, Kategorie 1). Es war sehr beeindruckend die Marionettenkunst mit Mozartmusik zu bestaunen im schönen barocken Saal! Würde ich sofort wieder machen!

Delightful presentation. Child friendly. Easy to see performance. Easy to access theater and close to other attractions.

One hour show was perfect, we’ll done. Great for kids but more interesting if you actually understand German.
