The work behind the scenes for TOSCA, this year’s highlight of Gaulitana: A Festival of Music, is now gearing up with a month to go for the staging of the opera on the 12th of April at Teatru tal-Opra Aurora.
Yesterday the Taormina Festival co-ordinator, Tania Mastrangioli, was in Malta to have a closer look at the proceedings with the Gaulitana team. They were also shown around the Aurora Theatre by theatre director Norbert Fenech and lights technician Donald Camilleri. Teddy Mizzi and Celine Debrincat, who will be helping in the stage and wardrobe departments, were also present.
In the meantime, a billboard has been put up at Ghadira Bay in Mellieha promoting the opera. This advert, courtesy of VisitGozo and the Ministry for Gozo, is strategically located as this coast-road leads to the Cirkewwa ferry terminal, thus being exposed to most of the Gozitans, Maltese and tourists who cross over to Gozo.
