Orfeo & Majnun in Valletta
The Maltese premiere of the Orfeo & Majnun music-theatre performance, which toured the Maltese Islands as part of Valletta 2018, European Capital of Culture, took to the stage on the 19th of October, followed by a second staging on the 20th of October. The performance played to a packed house at one of Valletta’s most prestigious venues, the Mediterranean Conference Centre (MCC).
On stage, the themes of love, loss and longing intertwined thanks to a multi-layered performance that combined music, opera, choirs, shadow puppetry and projections, bringing to light the parallels between the timeless love stories of Orfeo and Eurydice and Layla and Majnun.
