“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

We were looking forward to this performance having a great interest in folklore & culture, however we did not think it was as impressive as the performance we saw at the museum on Ethnicity. All seats gave a good view, but were not particularly comfortable!

“Great Show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

Went here with a group of 6 people and everyone enjoyed it. The show is only about 45 minutes long which is actually perfect. Loved how passionate all of the puppeteers are.

I was there with my little daughter and we loved it. The music was very nice and the show was really fun for my girl. Valuable for 45 minutes show.

“Neat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

Wanted to see what it's all about. Was a neat show. Great music and puppeteers. I got a kick out of watching how bored the featured musician was. Found it didn't hold my attention long and was disappointed so many of the puppet's paint was chipped so badly :(
