Amsterdams Marionette Theatre

The Amsterdam Marionette Theatre has existed for more than 30 years and used to be an old forge. The classic puppet theatre is shown in a small location near the Nieuwmarkt. Wooden actors, in beautiful silk and velvet costumes, present opera and musical theatre by composers such as Mozart and Schubert. Suitable for children and adults. The shows are performed with music recordings in Dutch. No less than six puppeteers bring the great puppets to life. A true fairytale!

Special for groups

Special opera dinners or opera high teas can be organized for families and companies, with a guided tour behind the scenes if desired. Furthermore there are worshops and special performances for schools. For more information about a private dinner for groups, please check this page.
