Events in Belgrade and Novi Sad this weekend

It’s Thursday, and the time for our report about the cultural and entertainment events coming up this weekend.


Event: Premiere of Claudio Monteverdi’s Baroque opera ‘Orpheus’

Place: Madlenianum, Zemun ( )

Time: 18th November, at 7:30 pm

Written in 1607, ‘Orpheus’ is generally acknowledged as ‘the first opera’. Monteverdi’s use of vocals and orchestral colors, played on period instruments of the time, puts the basis for further development of opera as a genre, and his vocal writing inspired generations to come. The story of Orpheus’ search for his love in the Underworld has inspired not only Monteverdi, but also Gluck and many other composers.

Event: Photo exhibition ‘Long Live Cavandoli!“ dedicted to famous Italian cartoon „La Linea“

Place: Ciglana, 26, Slanacki Put

Time: 18th – 25th November

La Linea (“The Line”) was a very popular Italian animated series created by the Italian cartoonist Osvaldo Cavandoli. The series consists of 90 episodes, which were originally broadcast on the Italian channel RAI between 1971 and 1986.

Event: Photo exhibition ‘Circus’ by Berlin-based photographer Jürgen Bürgin

Place: Bartselona Gallery in Belgrade Design District

Time: opened until 18th November

A wondrous world of dazzling illusions and crafty (dis)simulations, the authentic space of daring feats and extreme acts, a field of adventure and drama – all this and more is encapsulated within the sandy arena that lives – and dies – by suspense, contrast and contradiction, that we know as the circus. The circus’ polarising aesthetics manifests themselves in different media, in which they create their own imaginary. Together, Berlin photographer Jürgen Bürgin and literary scholar Anna-Sophie Jürgens explore these imaginariums.



Event: Novi Sad Jazz Festival

Place: Serbian National Theatre and the Novi Sad Theater – Újvidéki Szinház
