This was a workshop, shop and hand puppet theater. The owner and puppetmaker spoke good English and had a great sense of humor.

I can't... More

This was a fun experience for the kids. It showed Uzbek dances. There was also an Uzbek wedding shown in it, which was very amusing.

Small place with the owner explaining everything. Just a nice place and nice feelings. He has traveled worldwide with his puppets

A group of French tourists happened to be around and said they'd also like to attend, so the group specially put on a show for us. It was very entertaining and they cleverly mix puppets and people to... More

This theater is not very big but a small stage with puppet show, of course. All the dialogue were in English so there’s not any music or traditional songs with their language to watch and hear.
