Why locals love it

The Marionette Theater is one of the theatrical art genres that are popular all around the world. Such theater tradition does not exist in many countries due to its complexity. The first performance in Azerbaijan using marionette puppets, was presented by director and artist,Tarlan Gorchu in the late 1980s.

Why you should visit it

Even if you have limited time for cultural activities in Baku, you should make sure to visit the Marionette Theatre. Here you get the chance to come in touch, in a short period of time, with the full range of the Azerbaijani people’s cultural heritage: architecture, music, traditional costumes, the melodies of Azeri speech, daily life and holidays.

Special tip

By now two plays by Uzeyir Hajibeyli have been staged in the theatre: “Arshin Mal Alan” (musical, 1913/1990) and “Leyli & Majnun” (opera, 1908/2016).
