The performances of the Lindo Folklore Ensemble at the Dubrovnik Summer Festival have traditionally been followed by prolonged applause with the standing ovation of the audience, which happened also on the earlier performance with Cultural-Art Society Jedinstvo, and it’s good to know that there are three more folklore performances at this year's festival repertoire. Lindo will perform at the 70th Dubrovnik Summer Festival on the Revelin Fort on Saturday, August 3rd, and then on August 7th and 13th, beginning at 9.30pm.
Lindo first appearance at the 70th Festival was marked by a collaboration with Cultural-Art Society Jedinstvo from Split, which this year marks one hundred years of existence, and the program of the remaining three festival performances, the first of which is already tomorrow, will bring, among other points, an excerpt from the traditional Konavle toast which will be spoken by the director of the Folklore Ensemble Lindo Vlaho Kljunak. The program also includes the indispensable Dubrovnik dance lindo, Bunjevci dances and Vrlika wheel, old Split dances, Zapresic dances, as well as Podravski svati prepared for last season.
Since 1967, the Lindo Folklore Ensemble has performed regularly at the Dubrovnik Summer Festival, and has successfully promoted the name of Dubrovnik and Croatia in numerous guest appearances around the world. Lindo dance is on the list of protected intangible cultural assets of the Republic of Croatia.
