July 2008  

Dear friends and business partners!
The typical summer atmosphere of vacant streets, which exists in continental cities all over the world during this time of year, is noticeably absent in Croatia’s capital, Zagreb. As it is still early in the summer, not everyone in the city has yet moved to the coast to spend their holidays by the sea so the usual impression of deserted streets is still not evident in the capital city.
The Amadeo Stage
A Summer Stage Extravaganza
The theater and music performers of the Amadeo Stage have once again organized a rich cultural program for this annual event.

The event will kickoff on the 5th July with an opening ceremony featuring the Go-Go Swing Orchestra and performances by many other well-known acts by domestic artists of the Croatian theater world.

The world premiere of this play, inspired by a lost work of Shakespeare, will be held on the 11th of July and, from then until the 9th of August, it is scheduled to be performed almost daily.
