Hailed as the “most highly developed form of puppet and figure theatre” as the UNESCO intangible cultural heritage, the Salzburg Marionette Theatre arrives with the marionette version of Beethoven’s only opera Fidelio.
Asian Premiere


Fascination, illusion, artistry and tradition

An uplifting tale of heroism and love, Fidelio is a story for our times. The devoted Leonore is an ordinary woman who goes to extraordinary lengths to help her husband escape from an unjust imprisonment during the French Revolution. In this brand-new version by the Salzburg Marionette Theatre, celebrated German director Thomas Reichert and set designer Michael Simon bring audiences the utopia of love, humanity, hope and brotherhood that the composer longed for.

Hailed as the “most highly developed form of puppet and figure theatre” and listed as intangible cultural heritage by UNESCO, the Salzburg Marionette Theatre has been Austria’s cultural ambassador since its founding in 1913. Their production of Beethoven’s only opera was commissioned by Beethovenfest Bonn in celebration of the composer’s 250th birthday. An unmissable event for lovers of opera, theatre, history, culture and Beethoven.
