I came across this on Trip Advisor and decided that it was a must do given the appearance of the puppets in the Sound of Music. We went to an afternoon show of Mozart's Magic Flute which was great. It was sung in German but...More

We saw Mozart's Magic Flute afternoon puppet performance and we loved it! it was very nicely done, you actually see the puppeteers in the beginning and the 'backstage' which was very sweet. I think it should be on everyone's list while in Salzburg regardless of...More

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.

With three of the four of us not being Opera fans, I thought a Marionette performance was the only way to get my family to agree to the Salzburg Festival. Motzart's Die Zauberflöte (Magic Flute) in German with English subtitles done by Marionettes did not...More

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.
