75th anniversary of the Basler puppet theatre

The 75th anniversary of the Basler puppet theatre, founded in 1944 by Richard Koelner (1904-1993), is the occasion for a small presentation. Since its move to the Zehntenkeller on the Münsterplatz in 1956, it has become the first puppet theatre in Basel with regular performances. The presentation shows puppets in the context of old performances and presents music from old performances classical or contemporary. To this day, music still plays an important role in this theatre, as it were an opera with puppets.
