Budapest Puppet Theatre is one of the largest puppet theatres in Central Europe. The main purpose of the performances for families and adults is to demonstrate the diversity of puppetry, and the fact that puppet theatre does not indicate an age group but,rather, a genre.
Budapest Puppet Theatre is located at one of the most beautiful places of the Hungarian capital, Andrássy Avenue (a World Heritage site).
Since the foundation of the company, the Hungarian puppets have conquered the world: the company has guest starred over seventy times on the five continents; the performances have received great success at the most prestigious domestic and foreign festivals, receiving numerous professional awards at home and beyond.
The repertoire includes the works of both Hungarian and foreign writers, pieces by classic and contemporary authors, inspired by folk tales and other stories, new dramas commissioned by the theatre and inventive adaptations of popular stories and resonant subjects – what they do have in common, is that they all provide high quality base for the performances, which are highly colourful both in terms of puppetry technique and from a visual aspect.
Budapest Puppet Theatre is first and foremost a local theatre, catering the community of Budapest as well as Hungary, but enjoys an international reputation.
