Amsterdam Marionette Theatre
In a former smithy, operas are being presented by wooden actors in the most beautiful costumes.
The Amsterdam Marionette Theatre exists already for more than 30 years! In a small theatre close to Nieuwmarkt square is the classic marionette theatre showed. Wooden actors, in beautiful costumes of silk and velvet, present opera and musical theatre of composers like Mozart and Schubert. The shows are very suitable for children and adults. The show pieces are being presented with voice recordings in Dutch. No less than six puppet masters bring the large marionettes alive. A fairy tale! Look for the actual shows and datums at the website of the Marionette Theatre.
