World-famous opera director for Opera in Gozo

Posted: 14th July 2018. An all-time favourite, Puccini’s Tosca returns to the Aurora Opera House this October after what is considered an abnormally short time. 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.

Aurora Folk Group in Latvia

Posted: 30th June 2018. Today is a big day for song … Fanfares will play! And our own Aurora Folk Group will play in Latvia.

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!

Posted: 15th May 2018 OPERA NORMA REVIEWED ON THE MALTA INDEPENDENT.

It relates the tragedy of its protagonist, developing from...

The ‘twins’ finally make it there – CavPag 2017 reviewed on The Sunday Times

Posted: 11th March 2018 Forty years is a long time and in its four decades of  producing opera in Gozo, the pioneering Aurora Opera House never put on opera’s most famous ‘twins’ in one evening. The only time Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana was put on its stage was in March 1984. This was a Manoel Theatre production under the baton of Joseph Vella and looking at the list of productions at the Aurora, Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci is nowhere to be seen. They finally came together in mid-October so in itself this was quiet an event. Some very popular...
