What happens when three important institutions in Dubrovnik decide to organise something together, despite the political upheaval in the country, budget costs and a fact that we don’t even have a mayor?
In order to mark the 450th anniversary of Marin Drzic’s Death, the Director of Marin Drzic House (Nikša Matić), the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra (Damir Milat) and the Museum of Modern Art in Dubrovnik (Marin Ivanović) decided to overcome these obstacles and provide the audience with a spectacular concert on the terrace of the Museum of Modern Art, which boasts breathtaking views of the Old Town, Lokrum island and the Adriatic Sea.
The meticulous organisation of the concert yielded great results gathering 300 local and international viewers. Đelo Jusić, a famous Croatian composer, arranger and a conductor, conducted the String Chamber Choir of the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra, in addition to the performances by Plazarius ensemble and Klapa Kaše.
Luko Paljetak, a well known Dubrovnik-born writer and academic known for writing many editions of our favorite poetry and children’s books, read the poems dedicated to Marin Držić, followed by the Renaissance music from the times of one of the greatest playwrights in Croatia and indeed the world.
