Under the distinguish patronage of His Excellency George Vella, the President of Malta, the Medina Foundation for Music will be presenting the Musical-Drama, ‘Għalik’, with score and libretto by Mro Mark Agius, portraying the last days of Christ, from his triumphant entry into Jerusalem, to his passion and crucifixion and his glorious ascension into heaven. Inspired by the Passion play which is held in Oberammergau, Germany, this is the first time that such a production will be produced in Malta and will feature a full, live symphonic orchestra, singers, choristers, actors, and dancers. ‘Għalik’ is a revolutionary experience which will present the passion and resurrection of Christ in an innovative and unique way. Two performance events will be held at the Mediterranean Conference Centre on the 25th and 26th March 2023, respectively. The production, with a cast of over 200 performers is being held in collaboration with Id-Dar tal-Providenza, Special Olympics Malta and also features established local artists, singers and dancers of the St Paul Metropolitan Orchestra, the St Monica Vocal Ensemble, the Anacrusis Concert Choir and the Paul Curmi Dance Studio, under the musical direction of Mro Agius himself, the artistic direction of Sandy Spiteri Vella, assisted by Louie Noir, and dance choreography of Eldridge Saliba Curmi, together with the internationally renowned local costume designer Louie Noir, make-up artists and stage scene producers.

An important and intrinsic element within the production is the inclusion of persons with disability in acting roles. As an exercise in inclusion, the production seeks to raise awareness of local talents whilst also showcasing the ability and skills of persons with disability, giving them the opportunity to participate in a professionally produced performance. Parts of the performance will also be interpreted in sign language by a deaf person. The performances will be suitable for the general public and will be enhanced by the unique designed stage scenes, traditional costumes, props, stage make up, filming, adequate sound and lighting.
