Schönbrunn Castle

Watching Mozart's Magic Flute Opera With Historic Puppets
I have seen Mozart's Magic Flute Opera several times but none was so MAGIC like the one I saw at the historic puppet theatre in a hidden side wing of Schonbrunn Palace.

The puppets were so delicate and graceful, the quality of the audio excellent even though not performed live, and the whole stage setting really enchanting. There are separate performances for adults and children.

After the show, Frau Hierzer-Riedler, the owner of the theatre, invited us backstage to show us how the puppets are made, and what it takes for a professional puppeteer to operate them. It was lovely to listen to such a passionate performer and entrepreneur!
