About the Epidaurus Festival
In their own words: "The Epidaurus Festival is a festival of music which will also include other artistic events (drama, theatre, literature, poetry, various presentations, folklore, educative programmes, matinees for young talents, getting to know the area, its beauty, nature, tradition, etc.)."
Ivana Marija Vidović, Artistic director of the Epidaurus festival: (...)"My wish is that every sound produced at Epidaurus Festival would merge with Cavtat's magical hug, and that every word, every verse, whether sung or spoken, would, for centuries to come, continue to echo throughout its old streets, the very same ones that -- within and of themselves -- had been a stage for centuries already."
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!

Epidaurus Festival: An excellent hommage to Bukovac and entertaining Spyri's Heidi followed by tonight's Hemingway curtain drop
Epidaurus Festival flamencoed into its 7th edition; next up: 'Bukovac' lecture and exclusive film projection
The 7th edition of the Epidaurus Festival opened with Flamenco dancers.
Needless to say, the Villa Banac terrace was filled with spectators, locals and tourists alike.
We expect the festival to continue this year's run with as much enthusiasm and fun performances as it did in its previous editions, and will follow up on their up-coming events.
