Actors of the house Milica Zaric, Srdjan Timarov, Jagos Markovic and Goran Markovic will talk about the great artist.

From the beginning of his career, Rade Markovic’s opus was built into the foundations of the post-war, newly established city theater – the Belgrade Drama Theater. He belongs to the first generation of actors who are responsible for his “golden age” in the middle of the last century. At the beginning of the fifties, along with experienced artists such as Evka Mikulić, Bata Janićijević, Jovan Nikolić, a generation just arrived, such as Milan Puzić, Milorad Volić, Predrag Tasovac, Bata Paskaljević, Ksenija Jovanović, Olga Ivanović, Tatjana Lukjanova, and Vlastimir Đuza Stojiljković, Predrag Laković, Mihajlo Viktorović, Miodrag Popović Deba, Olivera Marković, Olga Stanisavljević also join. Markovic was among them. During the fifties and sixties of the last century, Markovic played more than twenty roles on this stage, including roles in cult productions such as “Death of a Merchant Traveler”, “Cats on a Hot Tin Roof”, “Witch Hunt”, and in 1958 for the character of Nikoletina Bursać in the play of the same name was awarded the Sterija Award.

In the sixties, due to the merger of the GDP and the Terazije Theater into the Contemporary Theater, he switched to freelance artists, but returned to the theater on the Cross whenever there was an opportunity. At the beginning of the eighties, when director Paolo Madjeli was hired, Markovic was a regular guest and played unforgettable roles such as Joakim Vujic in “Joakim” (1979), Salieri in “Amadeus” (1981), Mihajlo Pavlovic in “Sabirni centar”.


At the beginning of the millennium, Markovic played three more premieres on the stage of the theater where he grew up. On Theater Day 2011, February 20, the big stage of the Belgrade Drama Theater took its name, and since October 2019, it has been called “Olivera and Rade Markovic” after the legendary couple who marked the “golden age” of the Belgrade Drama Theater.
