no wonder that Dubrovnik has been chosen as a “living
stage” for the Summer Games in 1950. It wasn’t
a difficult choice, because the history of Dubrovnik
has been fascinating for many periods. With its architecture
Dubrovnik is representing the tradition of the renaissance-theatre
and is taking you to a living atmosphere. Dubrovnik
opens its city gates and you get shifted into former
times. The city becomes with this festival a centre
of art and famous actors and groups meet there. This
is the place where Croatia is meeting the world. The
Dubrovnik Festival is representing the ambience and
the history of the whole city.
All performances, concerts and lectures are spread throughout
the city so that the acoustics of the stages are used
in the best way.
There are 3778 performances on 50 open-air stages. And
Dubrovnik Festival welcomes a lot of international musicians
and artists as guests. Together with them the dreams
of liberty become true.
