The premiere of Hamlet as part of the 70th Dubrovnik Summer Festival had a rather special VIP guest in the audience. The Croatian Prime Minister, Andrej Plenkovic, as well as the Minister of Culture both attended the opening night of Shakespeare’s classic in the Lovrijanc Fortress last night.
Shakespeare's Hamlet, directed by Paolo Magelli, opened the premiere drama program of jubilee 70th Dubrovnik Summer Festival. Hamlet returned to Lovrjenac after nearly ten years after the last production and this is the thirteenth time that is has been performed in this stunning Dubrovnik fortress.
The first Hamlet on Lovrjenac took place in 1952, and over the years some famous names have appeared in Dubrovnik including Derek Jacobi, Daniel Day-Lewis and Goran Visnjic.
