DVDs on the operas Aida and Carmen, have been presented to the Minister for Gozo Anton Refalo by the PBS Chairman Tonio Portughese. These operas were performed in 2016 at the Astra and Aurora Theatres in Victoria, Gozo.
Dr Refalo thanked the Chairman, Board and Management of the Public Broadcasting Services and the Arts Council Malta for their support once again for these two operas which were performed in local theatres.
He said that these productions were professionally filmed and then broadcast on the national station, enabling thousands of viewers being able to watch in their own homes the commitment of these two opera houses.
The Minister for Gozo also took the opportunity to congratulate Tonio Portughese, for his recent award of France’s highest honour, the very prestigious Legion d’Honneur. He was conferred with the honour in recognition of his long-standing career and promotion of the French, European and universal values of dialogue, diversity and tolerance, and for his promotion of excellent business and cultural relations between France and Malta.
