Vietnamese Water Puppets

       

I went along to see the Vietnamese Water Puppets show the other night which is part of The Auckland Arts Festival. I had no idea what to expect but was blown away by the experience!

The show consists of scenes from village life and folklore in Vietnam with music provided by a live orchestra. It opened with the orchestra playing a couple of Maori songs which was a nice touch. The puppets are hand crafted with different functions which enable them to dance, catch fish and much more!

So if you’re looking for something out of the norm to do in Auckland, I highly recommend you go check it out!
