I’m certain the you will be as delighted as I was to watch this mesmerizing and captivating video. I know I’ve never seen this level of excellence in videography – kudos to those who created this on behalf of Croatia’s Tourism Board.
This Youtube video, “Ana Rucner – Ode to Joy” was uploaded on Nov 23, 2011 as the official video of the Croatian National Tourist Board “Ode to Joy” – Croatia – the new tourism star of the European Union.
The video, featuring the most famous of Ludwig van Beethovan’s music – Ninth Symphony , was recorded in Ston, in Dubrovnik-Neretva County.
Performed by: Ana Rucner, Croatian cellist star
Ston is home to the second largest stone wall in the world and the video comes following Ana filming a music video on the Great Wall of China, which provided the inspiration for joining the two sites. The hope is that the music video will like Ana’s previous videos, bring tourists from all over the world closer to Croatia, showcasing elements of Ston’s culture and heritage , gastronomic offer, vineyards and salt works.
Ana plays modern interpretations of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, with musician Neven Kocković accompanying and shellfish harvesters from Ston also featured.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone and share this video with family and friends – a great way to keep in touch.

Riverdance, the internationally-acclaimed celebration of Irish music, song and dance that has thrilled millions around the world is now in its 15th phenomenal year of touring.
There are many Lord of the Dance videos and I think this is one of the best ~ featuring the dancers, the High Priests, and Michael Flatley playing the flute with orchestra accompaniment. The music is absolutely captivating ~ hauntingly beautiful!!! (approx. 4:40 into the video). Michael Flatley is the creator, producer and director of Lord of the Dance, Feet of Flames and Celtic Tiger is an amazing dancer, and he is also a phenomenal flutist as well.
Written, devised, produced and choreographed by Michael Flatley, Lord of the Dance premiered at The Point Theatre in Dublin on July 2, 1996, within just eight weeks of its inception. The audience went wild. By the end of the evening, the show had received several standing ovations and such rave reviews that it was to become the most talked about, most written about, and the most critically acclaimed show in musical history. Lord of the Dance has gone on to receive unparalleled accolades, and to break theatrical records across the globe. Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance not only brought Irish dancing to the world stage; it catapulted the art of Irish dance to a higher plane, unprecedented worldwide recognition and cove straight into hearts and minds of millions worldwide.
