The Teatru tal-Opra Aurora has announced new artistic partnerships for the upcoming production of Tosca, to be staged on Saturday 13th of October.
The Aurora said that the renowned opera stage director, Vivien Hewitt will be responsible for artistic direction. The opera will be brought to life by camilleriparismode, the family firm that has been associated with luxury fabrics and high-end interiors since 1890. Aurora’s Tosca will see Luke Azzopardi costumes and sets designed by Andrew Borg Wirth as part of the brand’s artistic involvement.
This collaboration brings a whole revolution to the way opera at the Aurora is constructed, particularly in its aesthetic language, it said. “This year’s Tosca will be the fruit of artistic conversations and exchanges between renowned artists in their own right and might.”
The Aurora said that “enthusiasm and a keen commitment to bringing out the essence of an opera are the qualities that the artistic team is putting at the service of opera theatre and its audiences.”
“It is with this in mind that the Aurora Opera House brought on board these artists to spearhead the design of the production to strengthen its standing in the artistic sector.”
Tickets for the single performance of Tosca at the Aurora, on Saturday, the 13th of October, and further information, are available from www.teatruaurora.com.
Tosca at the Aurora is part of the Gozo Cultural Support Programme, (within the Ministry for Gozo and Arts Council Malta) and is being supported by Valletta 2018 foundation as part of its cultural programme.
