Amsterdams Marionetten Theater information
In a former blacksmith's shop, the marionette theatre has a limited repertoire (mainly Mozart operas such as The Magic Flute ), but kids and adults alike are enthralled by the fairy-tale stage sets, period costumes and beautiful singing voices that bring the diminutive cast to life.
