Marionette theatre has its roots in the 18th century but surged in popularity in the 19th century. The Amsterdam Marionetten Theatre brings this traditional European art form back to life. Marionette theatre summons key elements of music and performance through puppet acting, drawing audiences into an old and unique performance art. The wood-carved puppets are designed and dressed with great skill in various silks and velvet, and create a fantasy world which is fascinating to watch. The Marionetten theatre offers adaptations of world-famous operas and music theatres with a magical twist. The theatre regularly travels for performances in cities abroad but theatre-lovers are able to enjoy the shows in the heart of Amsterdam.
