Invitation to the press conference

"Only a few days separate us from the beginning of this year's 56th Maribor Theatre Festival. Last October, in the middle of the Maribor Theatre Festival, Slovenian theatres had to close their doors. After a long period of interruption, the festival atmosphere will mark the beginning of the audience's return to theatres. At a time when Slovenian and European theatres are reopening their doors to the public, we have prepared the central Slovenian theatre festival that will present to the audience the exciting achievements of Slovenian and foreign theatre production"

Aleš Novak, artistic director 

On Wednesday, June 9, at 11.00, we invite you to attend the press conference, before the beginning of the 56th Maribor Theatre Festival, which will take place between June 14 and June 27. We will present this year's festival program and its highlights and reveal the name of this year's recipient of the Borštnik Ring, the most prestigious Slovenian award for acting creativity.

We will hold the press conference in front of the Slovenian National Theatre Maribor, where Aleš Novak, the artistic director of the Maribor Theatre Festival, and Rok Bozovičar, the selector of the competition program, will speak about the festival and the program. Danilo Rošker, the director of the Slovenian National Theatre Maribor, will also greet the audience.
