The place is small and cozy, the artists are very professional and friendly. The puppets are so beautiful and all the show with a live orchestra playing traditional music. Definitely a must to see in Mandalay! A great and fun time with a old art heritage.
The hour long show provided a little taste of traditional Myanmar music, puppetry and dance. I must admit that we found the music to be somewhat discordant to our western ears, but it was interesting. On occasions the curtain was pulled back so that the puppeteers were revealed and it was fascinating to watch them manipulate the many stringed marionettes.... 更多
The marionette theatre in Mandalay is helping to revive and preserve the puppet tradition in Myanmar. They present a variety of types of puppetry with a live orchestra of drums, gongs harp and clarinet. I would recommend this for something to do in Mandalay in the evening, and also would be good for children.
