Dalmatinski Portal reports that summer evenings, excellent theatrical performances by top actors, a Mediterranean ambiance – all this, and even more, will be made possible thanks to the new Theater by the Sea festival in Split, with two theater stages will be set up in Lora. The seaview festival results from the cooperation of long-term partners – the Moruzgva Theater, B GLAD Production, and Amadeus Events.
The event is conceived as a summer theater festival. The program consists of more than 20 different theater plays for adults and several plays for children.
The plays will be performed on two open stages, small and large, from May 18 to mid-September. There will be a four-month theatrical program and as many as 78 performances ahead of us. Theatrical titles include one premiere and four pre-premieres.
Some of the recognized actors who will enhance this festival with their performances are Ecija Ojdanić, Slavko Sobin, Ksenija Pajić, Vladimir Posavec – Tušek, Ana Begić Tahiri, Momčilo Otašević, Mila Elegović, Bojan Jambrošić, Mladen Čutura, Ana Gruica Uglešić, and Katarina Baban.
“There are sometimes some wishes that you can hardly say out loud to yourself. Such a wish was a theater festival to my taste, and here it is finally, and also in my Split! B GLAD Produkcija and Amadeus events are partners of the Moruzgvi Theater in fulfilling this wish, and behind these names are people, long-term associates, and friends with whom this whole idea took its place,” said Ecija Ojdanić, head of the Moruzgva Theater, emphasizing the new location where the people of Split will be able to enjoy cultural events.
Tadija Kolovrat from B GLAD production said:
“We bravely embarked on a great adventure that will launch Split to the top of the list of cultural events this summer, not only in Croatia but also much wider. We are convinced that the audience will reluctantly accept our venture and support us in our adventure. A large number of the highest quality titles from all over Croatia, top performers, beautiful ambiance – all this is Theater by the Sea!”
Damir Bubalo from Amadeus events said that they are aware of the crisis and all the difficulties that the pandemic has brought us. Still, he believes that despite that, the non-institutional theater scene in Split has never been richer.
“There is never too much cultural content in our city, and there is an audience for all programs. Our audience guided us in choosing theatrical titles in the desire to offer our fellow citizens quality cultural content and a direct departure from the currently worrying reality. We are looking forward to spending time with the audience and actors, and all this, of course, respecting all epidemiological measures,” said Bubalo, adding:
“I expect theatrical Ultra or Woodstock.”
Alijana Vukšić, director of the Split Tourist Board, said that she was pleased to support the event, which will enable fellow citizens and tourists to enjoy art and outdoor entertainment.
“Despite the pandemic, such outdoor events will provide an interesting and meaningful stay for domestic and foreign tourists. I use the opportunity to invite all fellow citizens to ensure a successful tourist year with responsible behavior,” said Vukšić.
The Moruzgva Theater will present the pre-premiere of ‘Zvonili ste, Zorane’ and the hit performances ‘Vla, Vla, Vlajland,’ ‘Majstori,’ ‘Preko veze,’ and ‘Gola u kavezu’.
B GLAD production will be a guest with the pre-premiere of ‘Puni pansion,’ a new play ‘4 poze, sretan svršetak’ and the well-known titles ‘Politician,’ ‘Who the f *** is Biba’ and the children’s musical ‘Mi o vuku.’
In addition to the Moruzgvu Theater and B GLAD production, as organizers of the festival, the repertoire will also include theatrical performances of their colleagues.
Just some of the performances at the new Split festival are the premiere of ‘Tesla – Adapting Angels’ (Ka’Bina, KIC & Teatar Erato).’ They lived happily …? ‘(Scena Gorica),’ Dogs, money, guns’ (GKM Split), ‘Don’t give up, Njofra’ (theater group Lectirum), and many others. The program will be enriched by the children’s theater Žar ptica with excellent children’s performances.
