The Salzburg Marionette Theatre is one of the last remaining full-time professional marionette theaters in Europe. Since its inception, it has attracted millions of spectators and undertaken hundreds of tours worldwide. In 2013 the company celebrated its 100th anniversary.
The Salzburg Marionette version of The Sound of Music is based on the Tony-winning Broadway musical by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein. The production showcases the expressive detail in the sculptured heads, the meticulous tailoring of the costumes and the impeccable construction of the stage sets that have become trademarks of the company.
