Make sure if time to take a backstage look and touch the marionettes. Adorable puppet theatre, even for adults

“Wonderful Performance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We saw "The Sound of Music" and it was fabulous. I attended with my teenage daughters and we all loved the show. We have seen shows on Broadway and London stage and this was the most unique experience. Fun for all ages. Singing, marionettes, storyline, all outstanding. Great night out in Salzburg.

“Wonderful productions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

A real treasure. I have seen both an opera ("Don Giovanni") and a play ("Alice in Wonderland"). The productions are fabulous and there are overtitles, which help non-German speakers. A not-to-miss attraction in Salzburg.

“So cute!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

We came here just to see all the Marionette around. It was free and didn't take more than 10 minutes, but it was awesome to see all those scenes.

“Sound of Music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Charming performance of the famous story. very artistic. Probably more appropriate for adults given some dark, political commentary in the second half (but hey, we're talking about the Nazis taking over Austria, so I think they're entitled). The Marionettes are incredible and so are the puppeteers.
