The Leone Philharmonic Society A.D.1863, owner and manager of the Teatru tal-Opra Aurora would like to inform the general public that in light of the most recent updates concerning the global outbreak of COVID-19, in collaboration with the public authorities, it is closing its premises until further notice.

Closed Until Further Notice
Otello2020 cancelled


The closure of the Aurora Opera House comes despite the fact that Malta is, as at time of this writing, not under an imposed lockdown. It follows the earlier announcement by Gaulitana Festival of Music that the performance of Giuseppe Verdi’s Otello, scheduled for 25th April 2020 has been cancelled.

This also means the virtual cancellation of all events – daily, weekly and one-off events, organised by the Leone Philharmonic Society, including music lessons, rehearsals, fund raising events as well as musico-cultural events related to the upcoming Lenten period and Eastertide.

Theatre visits have also been suspended. Bookings and online sales, however, are still being accepted for the opera production of Aida, scheduled for 10th October 2020.

The Aurora Opera House, in collaboration with its bar and restaurant operators will, for the time being and until it is allowed by health and public order authorities, take this opportunity to speed up the refurbishment project being undertaken at ground floor level.

In the meantime, theatre visits have also been suspended. Bookings and online sales, however, are still being accepted for the opera production of Aida, scheduled for 10th October 2020. The Box Office may be reached by email on teatruaurora@leone.org.mt or via the ticket helpline +356 79045779.

The Aurora Opera House would like to send a word of support and empathy to all those who have been affected, in any way and to any degree, by the Corona Virus; a word of appreciation to all health care workers – from foot-soldiers to decision-makers; and a word of advice and encouragement to all its loyal patrons. We’ll go through this together. Stay safe.
