Founded in 1949 in Zagreb as a professional national ensemble, with the aim of researching, artistically interpreting and presenting on stage the most beautiful examples of the rich cultural traditions of Croatia.

Celebrating upcoming 70th anniversary, the National Folk Dance Ensemble of Croatia "LADO" is touring the USA and Canada this October. 

Marking this exceptional milestone, "LADO" is showcasing a completely new program, including some contemporary musical and dance works based on traditional motifs and elements. This performance is not to be missed!


By Heather Desaulniers - Washington D.C. 

"Though it is very difficult to reduce a two-hour performance to just a few thoughts, there are three words that best describe LADO: smooth, calm and joyful. ...Yet, what impressed me the most was the absolute elation that was exuded from every dancer on the stage. They radiated pure joy with each other, with the audience and with the dance. The pride was in their culture, not in flashy theatrical demonstrations; theirs was an intimate honesty expressed through a lineage of movement." 


EVENING NEWS – LONDON "An audience of 5000 certainly appreciated some of the most skillful and inventive performances of the national dance ever seen at the Royal Albert Hall." 


AFTENPOSTEN - OSLO "The appearance of the LADO ensemble last Saturday as part of the Bergen Festival was a rich experience and a presentation of authentic folklore of the highest quality…No less important, let us also mention the exceptional, joyful life energy radiating from the ensemble. The numerous and exceptionally rich national costumes also brought much color and atmosphere to this performance. In short - it was folklore performed at the highest possible level."
