Vilnius Theatre Lėlė was established in 1958 by a puppeteer, actor and director Balys Lukošius. Lėlė performances have been awarded at many international puppet theatre festivals. Although most tours are held in Lithuania, the theatre has also toured a number of foreign countries such as China, Algeria, Ethiopia, USA, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Germany, France, Finland, Denmark, England, Austria, India, Kazakhstan, Poland, Latvia, Estonia, Russia, Ukraine. The team of Vilnius Theatre Lėlė does their best to keep the theatre open to not only the best traditions of children’s puppet theatre but also to valuable trends of modern theatre. Nevertheless, the primary aim is to retain the interest and attention of both the youngest audience and the adults.
