In Mourning: The End of an Era

Posted: 27th February 2019. It’s being dubbed as the end of an era for our beloved Teatru tal-Opra Aurora.

Posted: 5th November 2018. Albert G. Storace reviews the 2018 production of Tosca at the Teatru tal-Opra Aurora on The Sunday Times of Malta on Sunday 4th of November 2018. The Aurora Opera House wanted to celebrate its 50th anniversary very much alla grande and succeeded in putting on one of the most, if not the most, lavish Toscas I have seen anywhere in the past 63 years. The peak in pomp and splendour was the Act I Te Deum finale. The dazzling mis-en scène and the sweep of the music underlining Scarpia’s confirmation of evil intent,...

Tosca – Splendidly Baroque!

Posted: 31st October 2018. Cecilia Xuereb reviews the 2018 production of Tosca at the Teatru tal-Opra Aurora on The Malta Independent on Sunday of 28th October 2018. Puccini’s ‘Tosca’ is not the grandest and most spectacular of operas.  It is a story of lust, love, a thirst for power in every sense of the word. It is an opera where, most typically of Puccini’s writing, the story is narrated through the music. Illica’s and Giacosa’s libretto and Puccini’s score work hand in hand to unfold one of the...

But there will be a very good reason why Tosca reappears in 2018 after 2011 and 2014, and that reason goes by the name of Vivien Hewitt, the award-winning opera director, renowned for her Puccini expertise. With over 50 opera productions to her credit in Europe, Asia, Latin America and USA, her expertise extends to costume and light design.

We don’t have our resident ballet troupe, but wait for it… we have our own folk group – a proper cultural ambassador around the world. And their next destination is… Latvia!
