My cousin Ballerina Sanda Mis dancing in Coppelia

One of the benefits of Family Reunions is that you meet your cousins that you do not know at all and one happens to be a Ballerina at the Croatian National Theater. Impressive to me. Here is Sanda at the reunion and after her performance in Coppelia.

Croatian National Theater in Zagreb, outside.

Plays have been presented in Zagreb on squares and in churches since 11th century. First theater was built in 1836 with a donation from Kristofor Stanković, who won that money on lottery in Vienna. Town of Zagreb donated the lot on Marko's square to build a first National Theater. A new one was built in 1895 and this is what you see behind. Architects were Ferdinand Fellner and Herman Helmer.
