MUSICA |GAULITANA A FESTIVAL OF MUSIC

“Gozo’s main classical music festival” returns, this year focusing on the theme “Women in Society”.

Gaulitana will present an eclectic mix of events in multifarious styles – orchestral, chamber, recitals, vocal, featuring international and local artists and ensembles. Held in various locations around Gozo (with some events in Malta), the festival incorporates multiple creative arts, from literature, to acting, cinema and live-painting, whilst presenting multiple genres (jazz, pop, musicals and folk music).

The festival concludes with the OPERA+ Weekend (5-7 April), three days of cultural bonanza highlighted by the production of Puccini’s Manon Lescaut. The opera returns to the Maltese stage after an absence of 20 years, starring Miriam Gauci – Gaulitana’s Honorary Patron - in the title role.

It will also host an exhibition on Giacomo Puccini.
