    What to Expect
    Visit: Salzburg Marionette Theater, Schwarzstrasse 24 Mozarteum Complex, Salzburg 5020 Austria

    In this unique baroque audience hall with 350 seats there have been operas, musicals, plays and fairytales that have occurred here such as:

    The Magic Flute - Probably Mozart's best known opera, staged here for young and old. In German, subtitled in various languages. Duration: 2 hours 10 minutes, also 1-hour version in afternoons.

    The Salzburg Marionette Theatre employs 12 puppeteers, trained in a wide variety of trades and professions. Qualities common to all of them are musicality, manual skill, and the ability to emphathise with the various characters in order to bring alive the marionettes on the stage. The Salzburg Marionette Theatre has evolved its own technique, which is used as a model by many marionette theatres worldwide. The puppeteers’ training, which takes place exclusively in the theatre itself, demands just as much time and perseverance as learning to play a musical instrument.

    Shows are subject to seasonality and won't all be available at one time. Be sure to check back to see what new shows will be playing next.

    We booked "The Magic Flute" because it was the only show we could easily work into our schedule during our few days in Salzburg. The skill of the puppeteers was truly impressive and I was surprised at how well my 8 and 11 year old followed what was going on by reading the brief

    Response from Ortnerba, Guest Relations Manager at Salzburg Marionette Theater The Magic Flute
    Responded 11 Jun 2019
    Dear visitor, We are happy to read that you and your children enjoyed our performance that much! The Magic Flute is also available in the afternoons in an one hour version especially for children and those who do not have that much time to spend. As I mentioned in a former response, backpacks are generally not allowed in the audience hall for security reasons.This is an official regulation and the same in all theaters, cinemas etc. in Austria. Also the charge of EUR 1,-- per person for items given to the coat check is usual. But we apologize if our front of house staff seemed to be rude, this should not happen and we will discuss it. We would be very happy to welcoming you again to our theater some time!

    We saw the Magic Flute marionette performance. Just timeless. The lobby is worth browsing too. Just fabulous and well done. Hats off. Highly recommended.

    We attended the Marionette theater as part of our obsession with Sound of Music. The detail of the Marionettes and skill of the performers was amazing. There were several from the US that were distressed that the performance was in German, but there is a projection next to the
