Amsterdams Marionetten Theater

Theatre in Nieuwmarkt, Plantage & the Eastern Islands

An enchanting enterprise that seems to exist in another era, this marionette theatre (in a former blacksmith's shop) presents fairy tales or Mozart operas, such as The Magic Flute, but kids and adults alike are just as enthralled by the magical stage sets, period costumes and beautiful singing voices that bring the diminutive cast to life.

It's possible to arrange a tour backstage; check the website for details.
