Midsummer Scene 2017 to open this Saturday with A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Written by  Jun 23, 2017

Shakespeare is coming to Dubrovnik! The traditional Midsummer Scene is bringing the bard from England once again to Dubrovnik with a performance of “A Midsummer Night's Dream.” From the 24th of June until the 5th of July the atmospheric Lovrijenac Fortress, overlooking the ancient Old City of Dubrovnik, will play host to Shakespeare.

“The brand new production specially designed for Midsummer Scene Festival dives into the world of Faery where the stark world of Athenian court dissolves into a mad lovers’ chase,” stated the organisers. This production is directed by Helen Tennison and the British cast is supported by an international creative team. There is even an exotic twist to the performance this year with “Bollywood-style choreography.”

These performances, and this will be the fourth year that the Midsummer Scene, has been held, have been critically acclaimed and the combination of the Shakespeare and the Dubrovnik seems to be a winning one. Tickets are available online at the Midsummer Scene website and range from 350 Kuna for a VIP seat to 200 Kunas.

“The festival is expanding from year to year. International guest performances in Vienna and Bermuda confirm the quality of the programs and the productions. This summer ahead of us is a new challenge. Midsummer Night's Dream will be played in a new light, with a new cast and a new set in Lovrijenac Fortress,” commented the producer Darija Mikulandra Žanetić.

Midsummer Festival Scene is a project of the City of Dubrovnik and the Dubrovnik Tourist Board, and produced by Brilliant Events Dubrovnik and Honey-tongued Theatre Productions from London.
