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 German, subtitled in various languages. Duration: 2 hours 10 minutes, also 1-hour version in afternoons.

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.

Avec ce spectacle, Salzburg prouve qu’elle n’est pas une capitale européenne de la culture pour rien. Une poésie folle se dégage de ces marionnettes et crée une atmosphère unique. Une spectacle à ne pas manquer !

Fabuleux, spectacle féérique et super bien fait... L'histoire est décrite tout au long du spectacle ce qui est très bien... A voir absolument lors d'un séjour à Salzbourg...

One of the tour books we had talked about both the performance and the theater as can't miss sights. We left Munich in the afternoon just to make it to Salzburg for this performance. Both the performance and theater were great and truly things you could only do in Salzburg. Marionette show and designed theaters are something of a lost art. While all I could think about was "...How many times do I have to tell you, Spinal Tap on top and puppet show on bottom.", it was impressive to see the performance and the setting. The stage is so small but it is able to convey a large performance. The subtitles were a little hard as they appeared on the side wall but they allowed everyone in 6+ languages to enjoy. Overall a great experience in Salzburg that I highly recommend.
