The Dubrovnik Summer Festival and Tele2 have signed a two-year sponsorship contract, which includes telecommunication services and sponsorship of the plays La bottega del caffè and Othello at the 68th Dubrovnik Summer Festival. The contract has been signed by Ivana Medo Bogdanović, the Festival's acting Executive Director, and Viktor Pavlinić, Tele2 Croatia's Chairman of the Board, today, on 27 April 2017, on the occasion of the opening of Tele2's new office in Dubrovnik.
„The Dubrovnik Summer Festival enjoys support from the business sector, but new sponsors are certainly not found every day. Moreover, it is a special honour to partner with a company which enjoys such great prestige among its users and whose business philosophy focuses efficiently on the satisfaction of its clients“ – explained Ivana Medo Bogdanović.
Like every year, from 10 July to 25 August, the Dubrovnik Summer Festival will present around 80 theatrical, musical, ballet, operatic, film, fine art, folklore and other programmes at more than 10 site-specific venues, and play host to around 2.000 artist from all over the world who will perform before more than 60.000 local and foreign visitors. Repeat performances will include last year's hit plays which were warmly received by audiences and critics alike. The song and dance comedy La bottega del caffè, directed by Vinko Brešan, will be shown on 25, 26 and 27 July in front of Sponza Palace, and Shakespeare's Othello, directed by Ivica Boban, on 31 July, 1, 2, and 3 August at Lovrjenac Fort.
