Have you ever been to a puppet show?
Budapest has a long tradition in puppetry. The Puppet Theater (Bábszínház) on Andrássy Avenue is 60 years old, and is famous for both its children's productions and its artistic performances for adult audiences. Morning and matinee performances are for kids; evening performances are intended for adults.
Occasionally you can catch performances in English, however adaptations based on famous classical and modern musical compositions work well with the shows and make the stories easy to understand - even if they are performed in that peculiar Hungarian language.
Morning performances usually start at 10 am, afternoon performances at 2:30 pm or 3 pm and evening performances at 7 pm.
