Vasko Lipovac – Retrospective
Welcome to a distinctive personality of Croatian and European modernism of the late 20th century. Vasko Lipovac weaves the Mediterranean spirit into his works which branches out from the abstract and figurative to a variety of media, paintings, sculpture, drawings, installations, urban interventions and constructions. It can be seen that plenty of serenity and at times humour, irony, and beauty all radiate through his art. Klovićevi dvori Gallery,

Sergei Sergeyevich Prokofiev – The Love For Three Oranges
The great Russian composer, Sergei Sergeyevich Prokofiev, wrote the satirical opera “The Love for Three Oranges” when he was only 28 years-old on a commission for Chicago’s Opera Association. It’s premier performance was on December 30th, 1921, in the newly-built Auditorium Theatre in Chicago. The opera is a milestone for modern orchestral music and is considered pivotal when it comes to understanding modern opera. Created during the composer’s early career, it has radically changed how the art of modern music is considered and created. Loved the world over for its honesty, simplicity, humour and soulfulness, it has brought its creator everlasting fame. Including the work into the repertoire of Zagreb’s Opera, after 46 years, is going to bring a fresh view to the piece that shaped orchestral art and the world of modern theatre as we know it today.

The Rijeka Carnival
This spectacular event is what many of the locals prepare for the entire year; wait till you see the traditional costumes worn by regulars as they are outrageously extravagant. Besides the exhibitions, masquerades, concerts, sports events, dandy rituals and celebrations; the highlights are undoubtedly the Children’s Carnival parade, the Carnival Snowboard Session and the pinnacle being the International Parade through the city centre where an expected 10,000 masked participants and over one-hundred delightfully decorated floats from Croatia and dozens of other countries from all over the world, parade in style. This joining of tradition and custom is a sign of unity and the march in the city centre attracts over 100,000 people from just about everywhere.
