6th Itaka Shakespeare Festival in Serbia- Programme
International theatre festival, one of a kind in this part of Europe, presents contemporary world productions of William Shakespeare’s plays.
It is held annually, in June, in the beautiful setting of a castle on the Danube bank in Čortanovci (a village in Serbia in the Municipality of Indjija, the Province of Vojvodina) – in Villa Stanković, one of the most picturesque summer residencies in Serbia, modelled after medieval castles in Lombardy.
The main idea of the festival is to treasure the work of the world’s preeminent dramatist by presenting attractive theatre programme under the open sky, as it was done in Shakespeare’s times. Besides the main programme, the side programme presents a wide range of multimedia and educational contents.
