Dubrovnik Summer Festival, founded in 1950s, the time when the western part of Europe was growing in theatres and various music events, is continuing again this year, for the 68th time.
The festival lasts for 47 days, from the 10th of July to 25th of August, and each year it brings a rich choice of different cultural events for the audience to enjoy. Theatre, ballet, opera, classical and jazz music, exhibitions, and many other events are be enjoyed by more than thousand of visitors, growing year after year.
The ambient of the festival’s events becomes ever so interesting because of the locations of the performances. So you can enjoy the music events in the Rector’s Palace built in the 14th century, or for an example on fortress Lovrijenac and Revelin, but there are different events all over the Old Town of Dubrovnik. Some even on the island of Lokrum, believed to be cursed – read all about it here. This year, visitors will be able to enjoy three premieres, the opera Orlando and two theatre plays: Messrs. Glembay and Victory Over the Enemies. There are also returns of La bottega del caffe and Othello, both shows loved by the audience. Furthermore, you can attend a couple of other theatre plays, quite a few music events and ballet.
