Il-Qtates ta' max-Xatt is a heartwarming children’s opera that will explore the sensitive subject of loss through the eyes of a group of singing stray cats who struggle to come to terms with the ‘disappearance’’ of two of the most important people in their life. Based on the book of Clare Azzopardi, Il-Qtates ta’ max-Xatt invites audiences, young and old to indulge in this melodious interpretation of a story that explores one of children’s greatest fears through the cheerful mediums of puppetry and song. Now it’s time to open that suitcase, because the cats are growing restless.
