13th to 27th January 2018
The baroque city of Valletta is the setting for this amazing festival of music and more.
Centering around the Teatru Manoel, one of the oldest working theatres in Europe which also happens to be the only one in Europe that fulfils the role of a National Theatre, the Festival extends to the magnificence of St John’s Co-Cathedral, the atmospheric Valletta churches, the splendid Grandmasters’ Palace, the auberges and other baroque edifices.
On the occasion of Valletta this year being the European Capital of Culture expect to see some of the best contemporary Baroque exponents of the moment, both international and local.
Take a water taxi or the ferry from Birgu to Valletta and use the beautifully designed lift to Upper Barracca Gardens before heading to your destination.
