Budapest

The largest puppet theatre of Central Europe, the Budapest Puppet Theatre (Budapest Bábszínház) is situated in one of the venerable, but slightly crumbling protected buildings of Andrássy Avenue, which is over 100 years old. The building hosts a 403-seat theatre hall with up-to-date stage equipment, and a 99-seat chamber hall, the Játszó-Tér on the 4th floor. The Budapest Bábszínház is also peculiar in the sense that it stages shows for the widest range of age groups from pre-schoolers, through school children to adults. It has owed its greatest success stories to the puppet play adaptations of musical works by Mozart, Bartók, Kodály, and Tschaikovsky.
