Generally our first and most important theatrical experience as a young child is when our parents took us to the puppet theater.
Budapest Puppet Theater awaits both the adults and the children on Andrássy Avenue, the most beautiful avenue of the Hungarian capital. The historic building, which is over 100 years old, houses Central Europe’s largest puppet theater, which welcomes its audience with state-of-the-art stage technology and vision.
The team of Budapest Puppet Theater, with its performances, strives to appeal to children of all ages, with Hungarian folk tales and novels of world literature.
In addition, the institution doesn’t forget about you even if you are over 18 years old. The theater has earned international acclaim for its high-quality and uniquely processed performances for adults. They thus achieved worldwide success with the puppet show of dramas such as the Midsummer Night’s Dream. Many famous classical music revisions were performed, including Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker or Mozart’s Magic Flute. These musical productions were realized by live orchestral music on the stage, and such entertaining genres as the first Hungarian puppet opera, puppet musical and operetta with marionettes have been created.
