On Monday, April 13, we invited the audience to travel by “Time Capsule” to the year 1955, when the Theatre Bulletin was published on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the National Theatre “Ivan Zajc.” Drago Gervais, the intendant at the time, remarked in his opening statement that the audience, which had been visiting the theatre since 1885, could hear the “persecuted, scorned, ridiculed language,” the Croatian language, on the theatre stage for the first time in 1946. We ended the cycle of CNT Zajc’s exceptional dramatic plays with Molière’s classic play, “The Misanthrope”, directed by one of the most award-winning directors of the younger generation, Igor Vuk Torbica. The play was premiered by the Croatian Drama ensemble of CNT Ivan pl. Zajc in 2017, with guest performance by Katarina Bistrović Darvaš.
