Philharmonic Ball

Once again this year, on 30 December 2018, in a festive holiday spirit, with the whoop, „Everything is a waltz!“, Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra will inaugurate the PHILHARMONIC BALL! It is a musical, and a social event that demonstrates all the splendour of tradition (and the gowns) and pays homage to the musical genius of the Strauss family, with waltzes, polkas and quadrilles bringing the atmosphere of the Viennese court to life, in addition to classical elegance that has been a little bit forgotten. On this occasion, Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra will be conducted by maestro Ivan Hut, with solo performances by the most prominent young artists of our opera scene: soprano Ilijana Korać Teklić, baritone Leon Košavić and the indispensable Girls choir Zvjezdice whose young members’ voices make every special occasion even more “sparkling”. They say that nowhere are balls as romantically formal as in Vienna. They also say that during the winter in Vienna they have more than 450 such balls. Our Zagreb Philharmonic ball is one and only, unique, formal and romantic, inviting you to dance, to romance, as well as to socialise, it is the New Year’s Eve party before the New Year’s  Eve party. Dress up in formal clothes, ask for a dance, and “have a ball” in the rhythm of the waltz!

Christmas light - a completely different story

In memory of their namesake Ivan Bonifacije Pavletić, the Pavletić brothers, members of the Arteco association, in cooperation with the Oriovac Tourist Board have prepared an unusual Christmas exhibit and workshop of creating sculptures from grapevines. A Christmas light, the shooting star which announces the joyful even - the birth of Jesus Christ, was looked upon by both humans and animals. This biblical event is portaid by the brothers Pavletić by using biblical material such as olive branches and grapevines. Exhibition viewing time is during the day when you can take part in the workshop where you will create new works of art and during the night when the sculptures will shine the bright glow of thousands of Christmas lights. The Christmas exibit will be open from the 6th of December 2018.
