Water Puppet Show

Hanoi offers the chance to see Water Puppetry ,which is a traditional art form that originated in the countryside and would be performed in the flooded rice paddies.

We turned up at the last minute and settled for the cheaper tickets in the aisle, but still had a good view of the stage. The show lasted for about an hour and showed scenes of country life and historical legend and was entertaining as well as being skilfully produced.

    Well you are as good as your word, thankyou for that. I don’t know what I expected exactly, but somehow puppets in water was the last thing I thought of from the name water puppetry. I was thinking some sort of juggling squirting type of an act…I don’t even know. was there a happy ending?
