A puppetry play in which images, music and animation come together to create a playful and colorful atmosphere: the great Pinocchio circus.

The scenography and the puppets are inspired by the images of Alain Letort while the plot faithfully reflects the characters of Letort – Geppetto, the Cat and the Fox, the Fairy, Mangiafuoco – creating independent “paintings and scenes”, as in a collage that wants to visually retrace the famous story of Collodi.

Il Magico Cerchio di Prospero

A story, “The Tempest” (W. Shakespeare), gets transformed into a series of poetic images, that expand into a huge painting by Chagall. The supernatural images develop and follow each other in the play, creating a series of poetic and dreamlike visions.

Traditional Puppets of Emilia-Romagna

The experience of one of the oldest art families in Italy.

The puppet comedy of Emilia Romagna represented in the performances of the Teatro del Drago, is the wise custodian of an ancient memory and a strong contemporary experience given by long tours in Italy and abroad.

Contemporary Puppetry

Innovation of a tradition

Shows with puppets, shadows and actors, based on a particular animation technique, created by the Company in the early 80s. The animation of the singular and unique puppets is enriched by a specific dramaturgical research for the images.

Puppetry for 0-6 years

Theatre shows fof children start to 18 months

Shows dedicated to children and families. The art of images merges with the puppets’ live-action alongside actors.

Street theatre parade
