The Love of Laza Kostić and Lenka Dunđerski Told Through a Play and a Book

Visitors of the Rumenka Cultural Station had a chance to see the ‘From Heaven to Life Without Her’ theatre play on Wednesday, 28 April. The play was about love between Laza Kostić, the most famous poet of Serbian romanticism, and Lenka Dunđerski, a daughter of Lazar Dunđerski, one of the most powerful Serbs of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

As an introduction to the play, Zoran Subotički presented his book ‘The Wonderful World of Dunđerski Family’, which has been part the project with an aim to introduce the greatness and importance of Dunđerski family and all important figures they knew, to the wider public. Zoran Subotički revived a memory of a truly great, powerful and significant family as Dunđerski family was.

Mr Subotički decided to devote himself to Dunđerski family in an authentic way, especially with his drama and theatre works. Thus, he created drama texts ‘From Heaven to Life Without Her’, ‘Testament by Bogdan Dunđerski’ monodrama, ‘Bogdan’s Mara’ drama, and ‘Lazar the Great, Dunđerski’ monodrama.
