THE MINISTER’S WIFEBranislav Nušić
A project dedicated to national principal actress Olivera Baljak, who with this performance celebrates 40 years of artistic work at the CNT Ivan pl. Zajc
I thank Momčilo Bajagić, the songwriter, and Dušan Kovačević, the lyricist, for allowing me to use the song “Pada vlada” from the film “Profesionalac” in the play. I thank Dejan Petrović for the permission to use his composition “Vrteška” in the play. These are precious gifts from the artists to Rijeka’s Minister’s Wife. Thank you to the actress Vjera Mujović for her collaboration on the stage speech.

Olivera Baljak, a flawless actress, wonderfully spontaneous, “light-winged,” with an excellent tone; a beautiful, handsome, attractive Živka, as she is rarely portrayed, who showed that there is no limit in playing Nušić, or Krleža, if the directors and actors know it and can do it.

The performance lasts approximately two hours and does not include an intermission.
