HAMLET AT CNT
After a successful guest performance in Ljubljana, another guest performance of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, directed by Aleksandar Popovski, is scheduled for 10th January, but this time at the Croatian National Theatre in Zagreb.
With Nebojša Glogovac in the title role the rest of the cast includes Jasna Đuričić, Jovana Stojiljković, Bojan Dimitrijević, Nikola Rakočević, Vlasta Velisavljević, Goran Šušljik, Miloš Samolov and Boris Milivojević. Dramaturgy by Goran Stefanovski. Set design by NUMEN and Ivana Jonke. Costume design by Maria Marković and original musical score by Kiril Džajkovski Sonja Vukićević was in charge of coreography and Ljiljana Mrkić Popović of voice coaching.
The previous guest performance of a Yugoslav Drama Theatre production at this most important theatre in Croatia took place in January last year. Molière’s last play, The Imaginary Invalid, directed by Jagoš Marković, was performed to a full house and to standing ovations. That is how the cooperation between YDT and CNT was reestablished after a hiatus of three decades. Our Ljuba Tadic stage was the venue for a guest performance of The Wolfhound by Miroslav Krleža, directed by Ivica Buljan in June, 2015. The last guest performance of a Yugoslav Drama Theatre production at CNT, before cooperation between the two theatres was resumed, was back in 1986 with the production of Travelling Troupe Šopalović, directed by Dejan Mijač.
Our guest performance in Zagreb has the support of the Belgrade City Council.
The next guest performance of Hamlet is scheduled for 29th April at Volkstheater in Vienna.
