Musical Evenings to begin at St Donatus Church in Zadar

time: 11.7.2009. - 14.7.2009.
place: Zadar, Croatia
The 49th Musical Evenings at St. Donatus Church in Zadar will be held from 11 July until 4 August. Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi’s opera La Traviata will be among works to be performed this summer.

Artistic Director Tomislav Facini chose the church as the venue for this year’s performances because of its austerity and excellent acoustics.

The church dates back to the ninth century.

Facini believes returning to the venue that fascinated Pavle Despalj, the founder of the Evenings 49 years ago, is the best way to prepare for this musical summer in Zadar and the big jubilee in 2010 – 50 years of Musical Evenings.
