Hg2 : The Hedonist

Puppet Theatre

In its prominent position a short hop down from Maiden Tower, right on the Boulevard, made more so by impressive night-time flood-lighting, the Puppet Theatre is one of Baku’s most visible theatrical establishments. Although aimed primarily at children, the show are charming and extremely well-performed by stunningly able puppeteers Unfortunately for most foreigners, most shows are performed in Azeri and the few foreign language ones tend to be from around the region – in Russian, Farsi or Turkish – but with some shows very familiar, such as Aladdin and various works by Hans Christian Andersen, the language difficulty is often surmountable. If you are lucky and hang around after the show, you may also be allowed a fascinating glimpse at the intricate workings back-stage too.
