Attending Mozart's "Magic Flute" or another opera at the world famous Salzburg Marionette Theatre is an absolute must during a visit to Salzburg.
Anyone who believes, that the Marionette Theatre is only something for children is very wrong because here the operas found in the repertoires of the great opera houses are performed by marionettes to some of the best recordings. Of course the performances of the Salzburg Marionettes are also an idael way of introducing children to the world of opera.
Internationally acclaimed artists take pride in working for the Salzburg Marionettes. The participation in the Salzburg Summer an Easter Festival is an indication of the high reputation of the performances.
