Little Floramye

Following the original ideas and drafts of maestro Ivo Tijardović, Little Floramye was imagined as homage to a lost time and spirit, addressing contemporary and new generations at the same time: Is there any place for love and respect for our differences in this carnival whirl of anachronism, politics and consumerism?

Ero is the most staged and internationally most recognized Croatian opera. Some of its music motives, especially its final Kolo dance “Što na nebu sja visoko - What's that shining high on heaven”, have often been used and quoted.
