At the peak of a very busy theatre season in the early-Autumn months, the Teatru tal-Opra Aurora produces the annual symphonic concert of its rightful owner and manager, the Leone Band.

Fresh from its outstanding success of the opera production of ll Trovatore, the Aurora is currently busy in hosting the Gozo performance of Divina – the contemporary dance interpretation to Dante’s La Divina Commedia, by the Naupaca Dance Factory. This takes place on Friday, October 24th 2014. In about two weeks, on November 8th 2014, the Aurora theatre is hosting another guest production, i.e. The Grand Operatic Concert 2014 by the Classique Foundation. This concert features the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra, soprano Norma Fantini and tenor Luciano Ganci (directed by Joseph Debrincat) interpreting some of the best-known opera numbers.

However, before this, the theatre is producing its own annual concert, in which the Leone Band performs a programme of varied music – from opera to twentieth century classics. After numerous occasions around the calendar year in which it leads in the contemporary and pop genres, this concert serves as the distinguished platform for the Leone Band to excel in classical music. Thus audiences are to expect a programme comprising selections from operas and musicals, overtures and film music by composers varying from Verdi to contemporary ones like Williams, (Bernstein) and Swearingen.

The Leone Band in concert on November 1st 2014 is being held at the Aurora Theatre, starting at 8.30pm. Doors open 30 minutes in anticipation. Tickets, free of charge, may be obtained from the Aurora Box Office, booked by telephone on 21559452, or by email via info@leone.org.mt. One may view the real-time seating plan, but online-purchasing is currently not available.
