An evening of Croatian music, words, art and wine in The Library
Refreshments served. All welcome.
Listen to a live reading from the first full-length English translation of Uncle Maroye by Marin Držić – a Renaissance playwright from Dubrovnik, and forerunner of Shakespeare. A cast of five actors, including Filip Krenus (the translator) and Adele Anderson (Humanist singer of Fascinating Aida), will read the selected scenes from this comedy of greed, lust and mistaken identity!
The musical component of the evening will be performed by violinist, Anda Vican, playing works by Luka Sorkočević, a Dubrovnik Baroque composer
There will also be an exhibition of photographs taken by Bari Goddard which will feature his view of Dubrovnik, along with stills from Midsummer Scene – an English theatre festival regularly performing the works of Shakespeare in the old town of Dubrovnik.
Copies of Uncle Maroye, published by The House of Marin Držić museum, will be available on the day.
Many thanks to the British Croatian Society for providing the wine for this event. www.britishcroatiansociety.com
