Free entry for visitors to the Croatian Ballet day in Croatian National Theatre in Zagreb

With a diverse programme, the Ballet of the Croatian National Theatre in Zagreb will mark the Croatian Ballet Day on November 4, 2017. Exactly 141 years ago (November 4, 1876) names of dancers and the choreographer in one of the most popular Croatian operas Zajc’ Nikola Šubić Zrinjski were mentioned in the programme booklet and thus this date is considered as the day of the beginning of professional ballet in Croatia.
