Colin Attard; a silver jubilee at the Aurora!

Posted: 31st March 2016. It was March 31st, 1991 when the Leone Philharmonic Society of Victoria, Gozo, appointed the young and emergent conductor Colin Attard as its musical director and resident conductor of the Aurora Opera House, succeeding Joseph Sammut.

A festa may best be summed up as a colourful spree of sacred liturgy, devotion, noisy revelry, decorative street furniture, and spectacular fireworks… and one or two...

A cool production for Julian’s un-cool life

Posted: 30th November 2015. His life may not be cool at all, but certainly it turned out to be interesting and somewhat appealing to a cross-generational audience that graced the Aurora Opera House’s stage last Saturday, 28th November 2015. In <<Il-Ħajja Xejn Cool ta’ Teenager Jismu Julian>>, co-produced by Studio18 and Aurora Youth Movement, there was his-not-so-cool-life that (as intended) left a bitter taste, and then there was Julian, who splendidly stole the show. <<Julian>> ran twice...
