Evening Gatherings at the Puppet Theater in Lviv

If the end of the winter holidays always brings you melancholy and a feeling of being down, don’t miss the Evening Gatherings at the Puppet Theater in Lviv. This event will be a wonderful conclusion to the cycle of Christmas and New Year holidays.

Briefly about the Puppet Theater

It’s impossible to talk about the Evening Gatherings without mentioning the venue. And rightfully so, as the Puppet Theater deserves attention. It is considered one of the oldest puppet theaters in Ukraine, founded in 1946, and has since become one of the leading puppet theaters in Ukraine and Europe.

The theater has two stages: a large and a small one. The large stage features puppet shows for both children and adults, while the small stage hosts chamber performances for young children and families.

The repertoire includes plays on various themes: fairy tales, legends, works of classical and contemporary literature. The theater also participates in international puppet theater festivals.

The theater is actively involved in the development of Ukrainian puppetry and the popularization of puppet theater among children and adults. It serves as a platform for various interesting events, such as the Evening Gatherings.
