Rajtek Tinbidel: Musical on 50 years of history for Xewkija village
|Email item||Print item||
Next month – Rajtek Tinbidel – an original musical will be presented live in the Xewkija Rotunda.
The musical will tell the history of the village over the last half a century, from the completion of the construction phase of the Rotunda, right up to the present day with the inauguration of the new pipe-organ.
Nineteen musical numbers cover the major events that took place during this period. Lasting just over ninety minutes, the musical flows seamlessly between time periods, drama and music merging beautifully and naturally into each other, the organisers said.
The music for Rajtek Tinbidel was composed to original lyrics and it contains a mixture of pastiche and completely original work which depicts, in the most natural way, the mood of every scene. With joyful moments as well as tragic ones; there are scenes from village life, some humour, and even a waltz.
Although the musical is in Maltese, there will be sub-titles in English to make the story accessible for all visitors.
Xewkija Rotunda is described by many “as a masterpiece in Maltese stone,” and indeed it is, the organisers said. This building, along with never-seen-before photographs and films projected on a large screen, special effects, costumes and a twenty-piece orchestra, will be used to create a magical setting that will take the audience back in time to the very core of the events being covered.
Rajtek Tinbidel is being performed on Friday, the 19th and Saturday, the 20th of May, starting at 8:30pm to 11:00pm.
