We wrote about the fact that this year’s 47th edition of ZLT will run from June 25 to July 10 some time ago, revealing the first program. Today it is already known in its entirety. On the first day, Kiev Street Theater Highlits will perform the “Happy Fairy Tale About a Sad Beauty” at the Water Market (13.00). On the same day in the evening (at 9:30 pm) in the Main Market Square, the same artists, accompanied by the Vuala group from Lviv, will present an outdoor performance called “Clown’s Stop”, a combination of theater and circus art.
Both performances are available for free. But in the ZLT program there are also those for which you have to pay an entrance fee. These include, for example, “Shame” by the Ludowy Theater from Krakow, which will be performed on the stage of the Zamość House of Culture on June 30, or the “Fraudsters” scheduled the next day, with whom the Och Theater in Warsaw will come to Zamość. Tickets have been on sale for over a week.
– Some are already gone and it’s worth buying them sooner, because they’re just cheaper now – encourages Diana Maciąg, head of the marketing department at ZDK. The same rule applies to ticketed performances.
The full ZLT program is available on the ZDK website and at www.dziennikwschodni.pl. Our editorial team is one of the media patrons of the event, and the honorary members are Andrzej Wnuk, the mayor of Zamość and the artists Beata Ścibakówna and Jan Englert.
Let us remind you that the history of the event dates back to July 31, 1976, when Jan Machulski and the Ochota Theater performed Romeo and Juliet on the Main Market Square. In the coming decades, almost all Polish professional theaters and many foreign theaters, including from Ukraine, Lithuania, Italy, Slovakia, Czech Republic and Russia. Since 1985, the ZLT audience has awarded its own prize for the most interesting performances – the Hetman’s Staff.
