Went to a showing of THE SOUND OF MUSIC. It's the full Rodgers and Hammerstein show performed by marionettes. Sung all in English, by Broadway performers! And for those who don't understand English, a summary of each scene is displayed on the side walls in...More

The Sound of Music was an absolutely enjoyable show. Everything about the show was faultless. The scenery and puppetry were fantastic. I was enjoying the show so much that I did not even think about the puppeteers who were doing all the work until they...More

Lots of fun this place. The staff were so welcoming and friendly-especially the bar man and the lad who sold the programmes and took us to our seats. The puppet opera was highly entertaining. Experienced puppet handlers. English subtitles to explain what was going on....More

This show was absolutely wonderful!!! A highlight of our trip. Our 6 and 9 year olds loved it. And we did too. We had watched the movie prior to coming. Tip: Sit as close as you can get tickets for.

Really enjoyed the marionette theatre and the Sound of Music production. Puppet masters were superb as were the puppets themselves. Really enjoyed the human interaction in the story (Mother Superior alongside the puppets), the ornate ceiling of the venue and the music - really fun...More

Of course, we've seen the Sound of Music movie many times, but the marionette performance was so well done, we were amazed. It was delightful storytelling and entertainment at it's best. The venue is comfortable and the intermission area pleasant (with reasonably priced wine) and...More
