Live opera returns to Gaulitana: A Festival of Music with an all-time favourite, La Traviata.
After the festival maintained its momentum with a number of online operatic series, the full-scale production of Verdi’s best-loved oeuvre highlights the 16th edition of Gaulitana. A stellar cast features Ekaterina Bakanova, Francesco Meli and Piero Terranova in a production directed by Enrico Castiglione. The Malta Philharmonic Orchestra and the Gaulitanus Choir complement the artists in flamboyant choruses, parties and hearth-wrenching arias under the baton of Colin Attard.
La Traviata will be held on Saturday 29th April at 19:30hrs at Teatru tal-Opra Aurora under the distinguished patronage of H.E. George Vella, President of Malta.
Gaulitana: A Festival of Music, organised by the Gaulitanus Choir, is principally supported by the Investment in Cultural Organisations – Gozo of Arts Council Malta and the Ministry for Gozo.
