June 2019 marks the centenary of one of the most defining moments from recent Maltese history; the 100-year anniversary since the 1919 Sette Giugno riots.

Teatru Malta in partnership with FCN will be re-telling this monumental narrative through the eyes of Malta's Artists of the Year: The New Victorians. The sister duo, made up of Bettina and Philippa Cassar, will not only be composing the show but directing and performing in this one-of a kind outdoor musical at Fort St Elmo's Piazza d'Armi on 7, 8, 9,14,15 and 16 June in Valletta. That's six chances to watch this bilingual, action-packed performance! VII's cast boasts talented names like Jacob Piccinino, Leo Graham, Lee-N Ellul, Christian Scicluna, Andrew Sowrey, Matthew Hunt, Jeremy Grech, Nicola Azzopardi, Sandie Von Brockdorff, Rebecca Camilleri, Zoe Camilleri and Julienne Restall, with the participation of ZfinMalta.


This contemporary piece, which revolves around the brilliant set design of Aldo Moretti, is devised together with Erin Carter as writer, Simon Bartolo as translator and Luke Azzopardi as costume designer with the support and artistic contribution of camilleriparismode.

This show is produced by Teatru Malta in partnership with FĊN and is proudly supported by Arts Council Malta under the Auspices of the Ministry of Justice, Culture and Local Government, camilleriparismode, LESA, Heritage Malta and Festivals Malta.

Performances start at 9pm and are suitable for audiences of all ages. Tickets are €15 with a €12 concession price.
