If you love cello, Meehae Ryo will be performing on the 2nd of May. Ryo’s breathtaking technical virtuosity and enchanting audio put her as the most recognised cellist in the Republic of Korea. The 8th of May will see “Notte Romantica” a captivating performance from the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra. 

The closing Gala on the 10th of May, entitled “Golden Voices”, hosts Anna Aglatova, a leading soloist of the Bolshoi Theatre, one of the most famous Russian singers worldwide. In Europe, she is known as "the younger sister of Cecilia Bartoli", an outstanding Italian coloratura mezzo-soprano. Along with Anna, local celebrity tenor Cliff Zammit Stevens will also be performing. Starting his vocal training at the age of 14, he recently achieved a Masters in Performance from the Royal College of Music in London. Zammit Stevens has been described as a ‘revelation’ (Daily Express), and as ‘showing exceptional promise’ (Opera Magazine).
