After well received guest performances of Hamlet at the Croatian National Theatre in Zagreb and the Slovene National Theatre in Ljubljana, Yugoslav Drama Theatre will open its doors to two guest performances from these two theatres.  The performance of Three Winters by the Croatian National Theatre is scheduled for 29th May and Faust by the Slovene National Theatre for 16th June.

Three Winters by Tena Štivčić was directed by Ivica Buljan. This play was first produced by the Royal National Theatre in London and was directed by one of the most prominent English theatre directors Howard Davies, recipient of three Olivier awards – the most prestigious theatre award in Britain.  Besides Croatia, Three Winters has also seen productions in Estonia, Germany and Slovenia.

The Croatian National Theatre production, which we will have an opportunity to see at YDT, has received high praise in Croatia.  The cast includes Ksenija Marinković, Alma Prica, Bojan Navojec, Nina Violić, Jadranka Đokić, Dragan Despot, Luca Anić, Barbara Vicković, Mislav Čavajda, Franjo Kuhar, Siniša Popović, Mada Peršić, Silvio Vovk and Slavko Juraga.

This artistic exchange with the Croatian National Theatre was made possible with the support of the Assembly of the City of Belgrade.

The guest performance from the Slovene National Theatre is that of Faust by Goethe, directed by Tomaž Pandur. This is the third time Tomaž Pandur has directed this celebrated play by Goethe.  He first directed Faust in 1990 at the Slovene National Theatre in Maribor. The second time was at Centro Dramático Nacional in Madrid in 2014 and the third at the Slovene National Theatre in Ljubljana in 2015. Unfortunately, this was to be the last direction by this great director from Slovenia before his death in April, 2016.   The cast includes Igor Samobor (CEO of Slovene National Theatre), Branko Šturbej, Barbara Cerar/Maša Derganc, Polona Juh, Branko Jordan, Uroš Fürst, Robert Korošec, Filip Samobor, Žan Perko and Matic Lukšič who have already given guest performances in Mexico, Columbia, Czech Republic, Macedonia, South Korea and Romania.
