Dear friends,

I would like to invite you to a premier of the theater play “Woman Anthem”, written by Davor Spisic, who won a Marin Drzic award for it, and directed by Robert Raponja. The premier will be on June 28th, 2024 at 9.00 pm on the castle in Pula. Monika Duvnjak has the major role, and is embodying Paula Preradovic herself (a woman that wrote a national anthem text for Austria), with her appearance on the stage in the roles of Mother and Father is a heroine Selma Alispahić, the champion of the Sarajevo theater SARTR (Sarajevo War Theater). In the role of Irina, the simultaneously delicate and powerful drama champion of the Croatian National Theater of Osijek, Anita Schmidt, and Katica Šubarić, a multiple award-winning actress from Osijek, who is also the winner of the Croatian Theater Award, shines with the role of Gerda.

I will play a short concert before the play starts, and look forward to seeing you there.
