In its first year, the Festival opened at an important milestone: 450th Anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth. Dubrovnik joined the world celebrations of this important year by staging one of the Bard’s most beloved comedies: ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. The production was a commercial and artistic success and has greatly enriched the cultural offerings in the tourist pre-season.
Festival Midsummer Scene coincides with the beginning of summer, in the last days of June and thus leads into the main tourist season. When Dubrovnik becomes a cultural centre of Croatia and South Eastern Europe.
