The Epidaurus Festival is a festival of music which will also include other artistic events – drama, theater, literature, poetry, various presentations, folklore, educative programmes, matinees for young talents, getting to know the area, its beauty, nature, tradition… All this gives to Cavtat a dimension of cultural tourism, and this year’s programme starts with ‘Valentango’.
