Gozo's Gaulitana Festival of Music

Published on January 1, 2017 by Frank

Madama Butterfly Gaulitanus 2017

Gaulitanus Choir’s 11th edition of Gaulitana: A Festival of Music will run from the 25th of February until the 2nd of April, 2017, the festival will feature a varied programme of events to suit everyone’s taste.

The highlight will be Puccini’s opera Madama Butterfly, being held at the Aurora Theatre, Victoria, Gozo, on Saturday, the 1st of April, at 7.30pm. The full-scale production will present Malta’s internationally acclaimed soprano Miriam Gauci in the lead role.

Colin Attard will direct the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra and the Gaulitanus Choir. The opera night will be part of the OPERA+ Weekend – an intensive programme of events concluding the festival.

The upcoming edition will present a number of innovative features. Alexander Frey, a top international versatile musician defined by Leonard Berstein as “a wonderful spirit” will be Artist-In-Residence. Lunchtime concerts intended particularly for civil servants and a number of talks will be incorporated in the festival schedule.

Gaulitana will also commemorate the 60th anniversary of the death of composer Erich Wolfgang Korngold, defined by Puccini as the “greatest hope of German music” and regarded as one of the founders of film music.

Following on last year’s successful venture, the festival will offer once again an Educational Programme including #Opera4me.

Booking for Madama Butterfly is open, directly online on www.teatruaurora.com or via ticket helpline 79045779.

Hi! :) My name is Frank, born and live on the island of Gozo, Malta in the very heart of the Mediterranean Sea. I believe every holiday is a beautiful journey to discover and treasure new places in a local way. Well…I enjoy most swimming, walking, cycling, food and wine pairing. Last but not least, sea-kayaking in Gozo is top in my list and Hondoq is a place I really like. Please do not hesitate to text me. You are most welcome anytime! Grazzi hafna / Many thanks
