We went to see The Sound of Music performed by the marionettes. It's magical. We sat in the second row center which was an ideal seat. The show was just as moving as the movie and unlike any other theatrical experience. We highly recommend it.

I adore The Sound of Music, and getting to see it presented at the Salzburg Marionette Theater was one of the highlights of our trip! The performers are incredibly talented. If you're in Salzburg, you must see a show here!

We were thrilled to see a marvellous performance of The Magic Flute. As always the music and singing of this wonderful opera was sublime. The charm of the marionettes was seductively mediated, expertly and realistically conveyed by their masters. With an ornate space of the...More

Hi Roshan, yes, i think the first row would be too close. I think the first row of the second section would be good as there is the aisle in between. So there will be no one blocking the view.
