Grand start to the 70th Dubrovnik Summer Festival tonight with gala concert in the heart of the Old City of Dubrovnik

By  Jul 11, 2019

The 70th Dubrovnik Summer Festival is underway and after the grand opening ceremony last night we are getting straight down to business tonight with a rather special concert in the heart of the historic Old City. Just getting all the members of tonight’s concert into one photo was a challenge.

Tonight at 9.30 in front of the St. Blaise Church the festival starts with a bang with a gala concert, including Beethoven’s Symphony No.9, from the Lower Saxony State Orchestra from Hannover and the renowned Ivan Goran Kovačić Academic Choir from Zagreb. In what should prove to be a spectacular night there will be highlights by the choir’s distinguished soloists – soprano Evelin Novak, mezzo-soprano Janja Vuletić, tenor Tomislav Mužek and bass-baritone Krešimir Stražanac – and all under the baton and the watchful eye of maestro Ivan Repušić.

As you can see from the photo taken today outside the Rector’s palace in Dubrovnik that’s a lot of musicians and singers collected in one place. 

Tickets are available for purchase at the Dubrovnik Summer Festival website www.dubrovnik-festival.hr or via www.ulaznice.hr ticketing service and at the box office of the Festival Palace (Od Sigurate 1) every day from 9am to 9.30pm.
