“Harbour Odyssey” is a site-specific production, conceived and designed to take place on the front deck of a beautiful 38 metre long a two masted vessel – The Fernandes. As the schooner cruises the waters, the Grand Harbour becomes the scenography for the theatrical narrative, informed several stories that have survived the test of time. The audience joins the cast of actors and musicians to experience a collection of historical anecdotes and local legends set within the unique panoramic views of the Grand Harbour. A special thanks goes out to Liam Gauci, curator of the Malta Maritime Museum, who has supported this production with his knowledge of the harbour and its history.
