Thank you Olga Solovjeva, from us all!


Childrens life is like a piece of precious paper on which everyone can leave a note. It is surely a great note - left on parchment - from the Platanus agency from Trsteno, from our friend Ivana Penjak Kasavica and from the artistic director of the festival Epidaurus Ivana Marija, whose idea is to honor the wonderful Russian lady ballet, Olga Solovjeva. Epidaurus Festival has every year tirelessly invited children in its programmes. Two days ago, two very talented young piano students from Bosnia and Kosovo performed, and tonight, 09/19/2015. Festival will officially close its ninth edition with the Ballet Department of the Art School "Luka Sorkočević" from Dubrovnik. The concert honors and is dedicated to the humanist, teacher and ballerina, the Russian ballerina Olga Solovjeva who loved Cavtat so much and where she moved to live till the end of her life. It was exactly Mrs Solovjeva who started and founded the first ballet studio in our city (firstly Cavtat, then Dubrovnik). Those are very beginnings of the Ballet department of the city of Dubrovnik.Thank you all!
