Amadeo Scene

Amadeo Theatre and Music Company opened in the summer of 2000 in the atrium of the Croatian Natural History Museum on Zagreb’s Upper Town. From 2006 to 2009 the Company operated in the Museum of Arts and Crafts in Zagreb. In the 2010 summer season the Amadeo Company returns to the Upper Town, to the atrium of the Croatian Natural History Museum. Thanks to its architecture and acoustics, the atrium represents an excellent site for theatre plays and concerts, along with various multimedia events.


Amadeo Theatre and Music Company is the only summer Company in Zagreb whose program lasts during July, August and September. During the season, the Company puts up an average of fifty theatre plays, concerts and movie events with a participation of over two hundred famous Croatian and foreign artists.
