Visit the XVIII International Puppet Theatre Festival The Golden Dolphin
A festival wanted and waited for by the creators and the audience because it had never disappointed their hopes to see the newest, the best, the most interesting of what is made on both Bulgarian and worldwide puppet stage; to commensurate their own works with those of their colleagues in an exceptionally kind-hearted and supporting professional environment; to meet both new and old friends…
The Festival is realized with the financial support of Ministry of Culture, Culture Fund-Varna Municipality and National Culture Fund

50 Years IPF The Golden Dolphin
The year is 1969. State Puppet Theatre of Varna is an initiator of state theatre celebrations. Its success is unexpected and it turns into festival of the Bulgarian puppet theatre play next year. On October 1972, the first international festival of the Bulgarian puppet play is opened officially. This is The Golden Dolphin. A unique forum appears on the palette of the international theatre festivals to support and defend the Bulgarian puppet dramaturgy for many years yet.
