A place filled with magic and fantasy

Throughout its history of over a century, the Salzburg Marionette Theatre has held countless audiences spellbound – children and adults alike – with its skilful, artistic performances and its impressive repertoire.

When the lights slowly dim in the splendid auditorium and the red velvet curtain opens soundlessly – then the little actors have their big moment, immersing us in a world filled with magic and fantasy. We forget that these graceful creatures, which can express an unsuspected range of emotions, are actually brought to life by an ensemble of puppeteers. Welcome to this unique world!
