You are never going to believe this, but I saw a marionette show in El Retiro Park! I didn’t recognize the marionette, but I wonder if maybe she could be a distant Spanish relation.

The show was so much fun! Maybe one day I will decide to take the stage myself! The show we saw was called “Simplemente Clara” by the company, Minusmal. Here is a short video of part of the show:

In the summer, the city of Madrid hosts free puppet shows for children and for adults at the small puppet theatre in El Retiro Park. I wish every city did this!

Did you ever go to see a marionette show? How would you describe it? What did you like about it? Maybe you performed your own show. I would love to hear about it! Send me a message if you have time!

Your marionette show fan,

Peter
