Traditional performances of the Lindo Folklore Ensemble at the Dubrovnik Summer Festival will continue this year as well, with the five performances being held on the 4th, 8th, 18th and 22nd of August at 9:30 pm on the Revelin Fort Terrace (first performance was held on the 25th of July).
Lindo Folklore Ensemble has been proudly presenting Croatian cultural heritage to the world for the last five decades. This award-winning ensemble is not just loved by the Dubrovnik local audience, but by the international audiences as well, partly because of its dance skills and energy, and partly because of the beautiful original costumes in which its young dancers perform. Ensemble celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, and the activities and performances at the Revelin during July and August are definitely a good prelude for the big celebration that will mark this solemn anniversary, which is planned for the end of November this year.
Its repertoire for these performances consists of Croatian folk songs and dances from Slavonia, Valpovo, Baranja and Medimurje, including Bunjevac and Sokac dances, and the inevitable Dubrovnik hopping-dance lindo, as well as the dances from the Croatia’s coast and the Istrian balun dance, and three musical numbers.
Tickets are available online at www.dubrovnik-festival.hr, the sales offices in the Festival Palace, on Stradun, at the Multimedia Centre Visia and at the Culture and Information Centre in Luza, as well as at the ticket stand at the entrance, two hours before the performance.
