Season 2018

Shakespeare’s comedy of confused and enchanted identities returned to Midsummer Scene (20th June – 4th July 2018), marking the Festival’s fourth 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 Dubrovnik Tourist Board and the City of Dubrovnik, and it is a joint production with Brilliant Events, Dubrovnik and Honey-tongued Theatre Productions Ltd. London
