Season 2017

Shakespeare’s comedy of confused and enchanted identities returned to Midsummer Scene (24th June – 5th July ), marking the Festival’s third collaboration with Helen Tennison. This time, the show took 1930s as its starting point. The stark Athenian court, for which the Fort Lovrjenac again provided excellent backdrop, dissolved into a mad lovers’ chase and also featured Bollywood-style choreography. A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a classic Shakespearean comedy focusing on themes of love, passion, magic, mistaken identity and even theatre itself. It is one of the most widely performed plays from the Bard’s back catalogue and therefore proved an absolute hit with the audience of the Festival.

Midsummer Scene is a project of the City of Dubrovnik and the Dubrovnik Tourist Board, and it is a joint production with Brilliant Events, Dubrovnik and Honey-tongued Theatre Productions Ltd. London
