Event: Josipa Lisac in concert
Place: Serbian National Theatre
Time: 24th February, at 8 pm
One of the most prolific and iconic Croatian singers, Josipa Lisac will perform in a concert on Sunday, at the Serbian National Theatre. Known for her long-lasting career, deep, striking vocals and unusual image, Lisac has been one of the most acclaimed singers since the time of former Yugoslavia. During the 1960s she was a vocalist of the group named Zlatni Akordi. Her first solo album, Dnevnik Jedne Ljubavi (The Diary of a Love), recorded in 1973, was a huge success and is until today one of the most legendary albums in Croatia and the region. Journalist and producer Peca Popović noted that The Diary of a Love was also fourth rock record and first female record released in Yugoslavia. Lisac also had the starring role in the first Croatian rock opera, Gubec Beg. Opera premiered in 1975, and aria “Ave Maria” was a standout that Josipa still today performs in concerts. It was created by her husband and long-time collaborator Karlo Metikoš.
