Poster for Moreska performance at Dubrovnik in 1950

The latest addition to our Korcula Gallery is this beautiful poster of a Moreska performance at Dubrovnik Summer Festival (Dubrovacke Ljetne Igre) in 1950.

The poster shows  a collage of several fragments of  Dubrovnik sights – town walls tower, columns of Knezev Dvor and Onofrijeva Fontana.

A collage also includes drawings of troubadours and the town guard in traditional, medieval costumes.

This performance of folk dances was held at the summer stage (ljetna pozornica), Moreska being just one of the performances – others were Podkolo from Konavle, Kumpanija from Blato, Lastovsko kolo from Lastovo, Kolo Bokeške mornarice from Kotor, Montenegro and Lindo from Dubrovnik.

As Dubrovnik Summer Festival started in 1950, my guess is this poster is one of the first posters made for the festival. (click on photo to see larger image)
