Really enjoyed the marionette theatre and the Sound of Music production. Puppet masters were superb as were the puppets themselves. Really enjoyed the human interaction in the story (Mother Superior alongside the puppets), the ornate ceiling of the venue and the music - really fun...More

Can't recommend this highly enough. It was wonderful. Only a little over an hour long, so not so bad for the non-opera lover. The puppets were amazing, and the puppeteers were so skilled.
