September 2008  

Dear Friends and Business Partners!
September in Zagreb... a very special month indeed! As the summer draws to an end, the streets and squares again start buzzing with life and it is becoming more difficult to find a free seat on the terrace of a cafe, however plentiful they may be. A new school year is about to start and hordes of students are painting the town and savoring the last few days of carefree existence.
A New Concert and Theatre Season
An Impressive Program – Pleasure Guaranteed
A new theatre season has started with a handful of good shows on the programs of Zagreb’s theaters. The Croatian National Theater has announced no less than 10 world premieres and the Vatroslav Lisinski Concert Hall will not disappoint either as it promises to bring prominent international musicians and orchestras as guests at their traditional concert cycles.
The Sixth World Theater Festival
A Festival Marked by Classical Drama
Between the 20th and 29th of September, Zagreb will be host to plays from several countries during the Sixth World Theater Festival. The Festival will kick off in a somewhat unorthodox way. Instead of a theater performance, the opening act will be a concert by the well known hip-hop group TBF from Split.
