Dubrovnik Summer Festival is preparing a special festival concert experience in collaboration with Adriatic Luxury Hotels, which consists of two programmes at the Vala Beach Club of Hotel Dubrovnik Palace. Through the new concept of the project Stars beneath the Stars, these two programmes offer top music events in a unique setting with an impressive view of the Adriatic Sea and Elafiti Islands.
The opening ceremony of the 69th Dubrovnik Summer Festival will traditionally be held in front of St Blaise's Church on Tuesday, 10 July at 21:00. This year, the ceremony is directed by Saša Božić, who is also the author of the script, in accordance with the focus of the 69th Festival on audience development, showing that artists, as well as the citizens, are the substance of the City and the Festival.
The concert of Mischa Maisky and the Zagreb Philharmonic, conducted by maestro Pier Carlo Orizio, will be held on Wednesday, 11 July on the Island of Lokrum instead of in front of the St Blaise's Church, as was previously announced. Boats for Lokrum depart at 9.45 and 10 pm from the Old City Port
