The fourth theatre festival entitled Theatre in the Fortress will be held from July 8 to 12 in Smederevo Fortress’s Mali grad, the organizers announced today.

The event opens with the musical Fiddler on the Roof directed by Attila Béres and co-produced by the Serbian National Theatre and the Novi Sad Theatre. In an exciting and fun way, Béres represents the fate of poor Jews in tsarist Russia, and an important element is the music based on the folk melody of Russian and Polish Jews of that time.

The following evening, visitors to the festival will have the opportunity to watch the family musical for children and adults called Vilinska zavrzlama. A modern fairy tale, without scenography, encourages children to be creative and imaginative and, through interaction with actors, they are motivated to get to know themselves, to learn about their fears and ways to overcome them, the organizers point out.

Smederevo will also host the ensemble of the Bora Stanković theatre from Vranje, which will present a play called Ruža uvela. . The play was written by Jelena Mijović, following the motives, characters and work from Bora Stanković’s prose, relying on the “Ruža uvela” story, and as the author herself points out that it is a play “people from olden times in today’s world”.

The programme will also include a play called Pericles by William Shakespeare, directed by Nikita Milivojević, made in a co-production of the Ithaca Art Centre and the Šabac Theatre.

Theatre in the Fortress will close the Kruševac Theatre with a play called Mace, also known as Comedy about the love of Captain Nikola Ivulić, directed by Predrag Stojmenović. This year’s programme of the Smederevo festival is of a revival character, and tickets are sold at a price of 200 dinars, except for the play Vilinske zavrzlame, for which admission is free.

The patron of the festival is the city of Smederevo, and it is realized by the Smederevo Cultural Centre.
