Mahler was here, Puccini visited it, Lehar and Kalman were regular guests. We are talking about the unique Opatija - a place, where, probably, the most beautiful (concert) venues of the entire Adriatic coast are situated. What brought us to found the Festival Kvarner? To anticipate: We did only a re-foundation to revive Opatija's 100 year old tradition as a Gesamtkunstwerk!

The Kvarner region's most interesting aspect was and still is, that this holiday resort was not established by the Kvarner bay's inhabitants but "found" by the guests themselves.

Also in 2008: For years Michael Fendre and his team from the ad libitum Konzertwerkstatt were looking for "the" venue, where music could build an extravagant symbiosis with the landscape and the climate to bring the audience a unique and unforgettable total experience. It lasted seven years, until music and place had found each other and Opatija was able to present itself, like it had done already 100 years ago.
