With tonight’s multimedia event and concert held in the beautiful Park Orsula, Ana Rucner opened the festival “Ana in the City”.
The show was accompanied by projections of videos depicting the beauty of Croatia. Many of them have won international awards, and Ana’s tourist video Ode to Joy where some of the scenes were filmed in Trsteno, received 13 national and international awards. The artist’s audio-visual project took the audience on a flight over Istria, Dalmatia, Plitvice Lakes, Slavonia, Korčula and Linđo, a traditional dance from Dubrovnik region. It is precisely this video, which Ana filmed at one of the previous Festival that always causes great interest when she performs it beyond the Croatian borders.
Park Orsula is a beautiful location with a special view and atmosphere that exists only in Dubrovnik. I’m glad I had the opportunity to take the audience throughout Croatia, through a combination of classical music and its modern interpretation, which is very close to a younger audience.Ana Rucner
