Written by  Jul 11, 2024

By raising the Libertas flag and reciting the verses of the "Hymn to Freedom" in front of the Church of St. Blaise, the 75th Dubrovnik Summer Festival was officially opened last night.

The director of the opening ceremony is Paolo Tišljarić, a Zagreb native with a Dubrovnik address, and the director of the Marin Držić Theatre, who also wrote the script.

The Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra, conducted by German conductor Valentin Egel, performed at the ceremony. The soloist was Dubrovnik mezzo-soprano Dubravka Šeparović Mušović, who charmingly performed the famous aria "Habanera" from Bizet's opera Carmen.
