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

We attended The Nutcracker performed by the Salzburg Marionette Theatre. What an excellent show! The puppets were so lifelike in their movements. Controlled by very talented puppeteers. Everything was very detailed. If you visit Salzburg, this is a must to see.

Can't say that this is a must during your visit to Salzburg. We had just arrived in the city and weren't ready for the aloof attitude towards tourists. No greeting at the ticket pick-up, nothing from the usher beyond programs costing 5 euro. The best...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.
