    Standing next to the castle of Fertőd, this special building was used for 150 years as a granary and still preserved the puppet theatre favoured by the aristocracy in the Baroque era, which is a unique one in Europe. This marionette theatre was opened in 1773 in honour of Queen Mary Theresa with Philemon and Baucis, the single marionette opera by Haydn, who was also the conductor of the performance then. The puppet theatre, the adjacent Baroque-style water-tower and orangery are outstanding universal historical monuments of the history of architecture, music and garden art whilst a unique example of Baroque marionette opera performances as no similar building exists elsewhere in the world. This is the reason why careful in-depth scientific research work preceded reconstruction focussing on primarily issues of the birth of the theatre in the 18th century, as well as defining its spatial organisation and operations.
