La Valletta 2018, here the programme for 2023

By Press release February 08, 2023

The Valletta Cultural Agency has launched its Programme for 2023 – a reimagined series of high-quality events including an exciting new production of the Opera Tosca, City of Colour: A programme of artistic installations in South Street, exhibitions, concerts as well as film screenings and other spectacular theatre productions.

Stellar Productions & World Class Artists
Among the stellar productions as part of the Valletta Cultural Agency’s programme is Mary Spiteri: My Life – a celebration of one of the island’s iconic singers, her life and career by means of a repertoire of songs and interviews. The opera Tosca is another outstanding production taking place in partnership with Teatru Manoel which sees the participation of Kor Malta and the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra. This new production is designed, directed and featuring world class artist José Cura in the main part as Cavaradossi.

The Valletta Cultural Agency’s programme features several other collaborations on a grand scale which need little introduction, including the Valletta Green Festival, Cinema City and Opera in the City – The Three Tenors. Following last year’s success, the Valletta Local Food Festival returns for a weekend of the finest local cuisine in the ambience of the Valletta Design Cluster. Towards the end of the year, visual art enthusiasts may enjoy a feast for the senses in an exhibition of Darren Tanti’s works – one of Malta’s most thought-provoking artists who focuses on the hyperreality and the integration of the digital into explorative painting techniques.

Tnejn Għat-Talkies
Two great fim classics - Manhattan (Woody Allen, 1979) and Ladri di Biciclette (Vittorio de Sica, 1948) will be screened at Embassy Cinemas on the 6th and 13th February respectively, as part of the series Tnejn Għat-Talkies which celebrates classic and memorable films in the heart of the Capital. This event is organised by the Valletta Cultural Agency, as part of its Strada Stretta programme. 

The Spirit of ’73
The Strada Stretta curated programme continues on the 18th February with The Spirit of ’73 – a performance of popular classics of the iconic seventies when disco, funk, soul, R&B, smooth jazz, jazz fusion and rock music were popular. This coincided with the time when Strait Street was at its peak.

Taking place at The Silver Horse in Strait Street, the Spirit of ’73 will bring to light the Street Collective, featuring David Cassar Torreggiani. This band is being brought together for a night of lively music and includes the participation of guest singers.
