The evening before the Statehood Day and the Day of Croatian Defenders of Split, on Saturday, May 29, starting at 8 pm on the newly renovated Gajo Bulat Square, the Choir, Orchestra and Soloists of the Opera and Drama Actors of the Croatian National Theater Split will perform a gala concert as a gift to all Split citizens.

Under the direction of maestro Ivo Lipanović, tenor Božo Jurić Pešić, soprano Antonija Teskera, and bass Božo Župić will perform as soloists. The program includes arias by Split composers Josip Hatze, Ivo Tijardović, and Jakov Gotovac, as well as an aria “In battle, in battle” from the opera Nikola Šubić Zrinjski by Ivan Zajc.

Considering it is the 500th anniversary of the first edition of the epic “Judith” by Marko Marulić, actress Katarina Romac will perform a monologue by Judith, and Trpimir Jurkić will give a solemn speech given by Mayor Gajo Bulat when opening the new theater building on May 6, 1893.

After the program, fireworks will follow in front of the HNK Split building at around 9 pm, from Bedema Priuli.
