BOV Performing Arts Festival
The BOV Opera Festival is one of the most anticipated events of Malta's cultural and operatic calendar.
The annual Teatru Manoel BOV Performing Arts Festival kicked off on March 14th this year, with a double-bill featuring Cavalleria Rusticana and Pagliacci at the Manoel Theatre. Featuring both local and foreign performers, this predominant Maltese production has seen local directors Denise Mulholland and Nanette Brimmer and set designer Pierre Portelli taking charge.
The much anticipated second event

, the KKL Luzern
, the Royal Albert Hall
and Burgtheater Vienna
among others. Combining comedy and talented musicianship, this brass ensemble will be performing an eclectic mix.
The third event
is the Lieder Recital
which is due to take place on May 7th. The event will see Malta’s own Gillian Zammit
, an established soprano both locally and overseas, performing an operatic repertoire that ranges from Baroque to 20th Century Opera accompanied by pianist Lucia Micallef.
