Croatian National Theatre in Zagreb

Behind the scenes of Ero the Joker (I)

Backstage | Gotovac

Ero the Joker has been performed on over 80 stages around the world, but it's true home is at the Croatian National Theatre in Zagreb. The opera's composer and librettist were both employed by the Theatre when it received its premiere there in 1935, and the joyous work has hardly left the repertoire since. In this behind the scenes video, watch the cast and crew prepare to give another performance of this timeless Croatian classic.

This performance is no longer viewable as video-on-demand for rights reasons but other material about the production is still available here.
