70th Dubrovnik Summer Festival starts tonight

10.07.2019. | Announcements
70th Dubrovnik Summer Festival
10 July – 25 August 2019

One of the oldest and most prestigious European festivals, a member of the European Festivals Association since 1956, will present its numerous domestic and international audiences with over 80 theatre, music, ballet, film, folklore and other performances during 47 days of its big, 70th anniversary edition in the following season. The conceptual guideline of the 70th Dubrovnik Summer Festival is based on the slogan City Myths.

The programme brings together best Croatian artists and top performances by international artists. It disintegrates the mythology of the European cultural heritage, the myths of Dubrovnik and the myths of the Festival, at the same time questioning the past and the future of site-specific performance practices and nurturing the relationship between tradition and modernity. Its own production remains the backbone of its theatre programme, thus confirming the national, cultural and historical identity built by the Dubrovnik Summer Festival during its long existence, with the model of the Festival Drama Ensemble as its specific feature.

Encouraged by last year's success of programmes for children, the 70th edition of the Festival are preparing contents for kids again.

The music programme of the 70th Dubrovnik Summer Festival brings big names and exceptional programmes.

The seventieth Dubrovnik Summer Festival opening ceremony will take place on Wednesday, 10 July 2019, in front of St Blaise's Church.
