Puppet show

HDP  131
Can you guess what this is? Theatre?
Nope, it actually is the ‘stage’ of the famous Water Pupper show, located at one of the corners of Hoan Kiem lake; a traditional music band plays while animated puppets are evolving on the water in front of this house (which hides the puppet masters). The show is split into a bit less than 20 short scenes which mostly relate to Vietnamese folklore… Very fun to see!
