Dress Rehearsal of the Opening Ceremony of the 69th Dubrovnik Summer Festival

Opening Ceremony of the Dubrovnik Summer Festival originated in the collective memory of Carnival, the season during which in medieval times travelling actors, troubadours and other entertainers were allowed to enter the City and amuse its residents with their performances until Ash Wednesday. The Rector of the Dubrovnik Republic gives the actors keys to the City, symbolically allowing them to perform there. The photogallery marks the Dress rehearsal of the 69th Dubrovnik Summer Festival.
