The highlight of this year's Gaulitana: A Festival of Music is the operatic production of Tosca; the biggest project embarked on yet in the festival's 8-year history. This full-scale opera, held in collaboration with Taormina Festival, will be staged at the Teatru tal-Opra Aurora on the 12th of April, 2014.
The director and scene-artist will be acclaimed Italian director Enrico Castiglione, who has to his credit 2 Tosca productions released live in European cinemas by Rai Mondovisione. The cast will be spear-headed by one of the world’s best interpreters of Tosca, Norma Fantini, top Italian tenor Piero Giuliacci and emerging baritone Francesco Landolfi, currently collaborating with Muti. The Malta Philharmonic Orchestra will be under the baton of Colin Attard whilst the chorus will be the Gaulitanus Choir.
