"Tales of Long Ago" premiered in Zagreb!
Updated: Feb 19
Trešnja Municipal Theatre (Zagreb) & Marin Držić Theatre (Dubrovnik) co-produced the newest play, directed by Paolo Tišljarić and with text adaptation by Lada Kaštelan. Original music score was composed by V E R S I O N 12 and album will be published soon!
(Croatian) Tales of Long Ago is a short story collection written by the acclaimed children's author Ivana Brlić-Mažuranić, originally published in 1916 in Zagreb by the Matica hrvatska publishing house. The collection is considered her masterpiece and it features a series of fairy tales heavily inspired by motifs taken from ancient Slavic mythology of pre-Christian Croatia.
“(Croatian) Tales of Long Ago are seen as one of the most typical examples of Ivana Brlić- Mažuranić style which has been compared by literary critics to Hans Christian Andersen and J. R. R. Tolkien due to the way it combines original fantasy plots with folk mythology."
