State Puppet Theatre – Stara Zagora

The magic of puppetry

Puppetry in Stara Zagora has a long history and rich traditions.

Memories of generations keep its funny stories and fairy tales alive, and the rich and diverse repertoire of Stara Zagora Puppet Theatre every year grabs the hearts of more and more friends of all ages. 

The theatre has been awarded with the most important prizes from prestigious national and world forums. Since 2000, it has been hosting the International Puppet Theatre Festival for Adults "Pierrot", which turns Stara Zagora into the capital of puppetry every two years in September.

The clock with the dolls on the facade of the theatre house is one of a kind on the Balkan Peninsula. For more than four decades, the clock comes to life every hour throughout the day – and the most beloved characters from fairy-tales go out and meet their genuine friends in the background of enchanting music.
