About The Company

Lutkovno Gledališče Maribor, translating to Maribor Puppet Theatre from Slovene, is located in a renovated 13th century monastary, in Maribor, Slovenia. The Maribor Puppet Theater was founded on December 8, 1973 by the merger of two amateur puppet theaters in the city – the KUD Jože Hermanko Maribor Puppet Theater and the DPD Svoboda Pobrežje Puppet Theater.

Considered one of the best modern puppet theatres in Europe, Lutkovno Gledališče Maribor thoughtfully and sensitively appeals to viewers of all ages through creativity, imagination, and an understanding of puppetry art.
