Martina Bienenfeld, director of the Zagreb Tourist Board, said: “This year’s Zagreb Classic Festival begins on Thursday, June 23, with a kick-off concert by Ukrainian violin soloist Anastasiye Petryshak and the Zagreb Opera Orchestra. On Wednesday, June 29, the festival will culminate with a Cameristi della Scala chamber orchestra performance – musicians from the Teatro alla Scala orchestra from Milan. These events are free, and we expect many visitors, thanks to the carefully selected domestic and international music repertoire and the amazing ambiance and atmosphere that King Tomislav Square lends to the city overall, but as a backdrop for these events. It’s my pleasure to invite and welcome you to Zagreb, which is, according to many visitors, the most beautiful and vibrant in the summer months.”
