    The marionette has fascinated the world for millennia and continues to do so. Austria has whole heartedly embraced this art form and has contributed significantly to its further development. During this virtual event we’ll look closely at Austria’s history of puppetry, with emphasis on its role in the nobility, classical music, and culture. We will also explore the origins of the Salzburg Marionette Theatre, one of the world’s oldest marionette theaters still in full operation, both in Austria as well as a traveling company. Attendees will also see a few clips of several of their performances. This presentation is a must for puppet enthusiasts!
