‘Valletta Resounds - The Caravaggio Experience’ will provide a new and innovative cultural experience to both locals and tourists alike.

This new cultural experience showcases the magnificence of the Oratory with an enriching experience of music and theatre, performed by some of Malta’s finest artists.

Critically acclaimed Maltese musicians, under the musical direction of Jacob Portelli are at the helm of performance. They will be bringing to life the works of Baroque Masters such as Vivaldi and Bach along with the sound of sacred Maltese music by composer Francesco Azzopardi and more.

Sung to perfection by some of Malta’s most esteemed sopranos including Dorothy Bezzina and Dorothy Baldacchino, the music will be beautifully brought to life on the original 16th century Oratory Organ, Baroque Harp, Baroque Violin, Baroque Cello and the Psaltery.

This auditory delight is woven harmoniously with tales of the Knights of St John narrated by the ever charming and regal character of Frà Bartolomeo performed by Jeremy Grech.

A highlight of the Valletta Resounds Caravaggio Experience is the music score for the atmospheric light installation on details of the Caravaggio masterpiece.

Valletta Resounds is an immersive experience that goes beyond the performative aspect. It delves deep into the history of the Knights of St John as it unravels untold stories of a time long gone through theatre, classical music and art.

The first in a series of performances for Valletta Resounds, the Caravaggio Experience, begins this Friday 21st April at 18:30 with doors opening at 18:00 for exclusive after-hours access to the Cathedral. Tickets may be purchased from here
