This year's edition of the Epidaurus Festival finished its beautiful run with theatrical performance of one of the world's best know literature works, Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea. The story was first published in book form on September 1, 1952 (the first edition print run was 50,000 copies).
Here told by Ivan Horvat, the story unfolds from the perspective of Manolin, underlying throughout the importance of our ilfe long learning process with all its challenges.
A truly wonderful performance delivered by Ivan Horvat, directed by Ana Merlin, quickly won over the audience. The backdrop scene of the port of Cavtat with its little wooden boats and a few guest sails only heightened the effects of Horvat's excellent performance.
Thumbs up for Epidaurus Festival team headed by the pianist and EF Art Director Ivana Marija Vidović!
