It was cabaret night last evening on the island of Lokrum as Ines Trickovic wooed the audience with the Jazz Cabaret “Lilibelle.” This was the second year in a row that this talented Dubrovnik born jazz singer has performed on the island of Lokrum and, just as the premiere year, it was a huge hit. In fact this was the Croatian premiere of the cabaret and the hour and a half long show was actually written by Trickovic.
"Lilibelle" is a 1940’s love story about a singer named Lilibelle who falls madly in love with a US solider called Johnny. Lilibelle she packs her suitcase and moves into an adventure across the world seeking her beloved Johnny. And along the journey Trickovic performed in a variety of languages, including Chinese.
This award-winning jazz singer held a concert on Lokrum last year, where she presented the same program she performed at Carnegie Hall, and the concert was completely sold out.
