17th International chamber theatre festival
The streets and squares in Umag become the stage to the numerous theatre fleets from Croatia, Slovenia, Italia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Macedonia. In this period, the streets live their lives fully thanks to the Golden Lion, the international chamber theatre festival.
This multicultural event that gathers numerous writers, directors, choreographers, set designers, composers and of course, actors, chose Umag, a city of a long theatre tradition, as its home town. Namely, in 1820, while Antonio Coslovich was building the Al Leon d'oro hotel, it was decided that he should also set the theatre next to the hotel, the first of its kind in the region.
The Golden Lion, envisaged as the modern theatre review with a set theme, became the real tourist attraction and a bait for all theatre and culture aficionados.
The whole 10-day theatrical story begins with the traditional lighting up the fire in the park belonging to the town theatre, and the Umag theatre afterwards is lively all day long, up to the night.
