During the 2018 year-of-culture the Valletta 2018 Foundation shall be endorsing the musical Island of Enchantment – an original score by Gozo Live on a theme particularly relevant to the island of Gozo. Gozo Live shall be staging the musical over eight weeks in the Citadella in Victoria, with two performances weekly.
The musical will be set up by the creative input of many Gozo residents, including actors, singers, musicians, dancers, backstage workers and directors. The project shall demonstrate the artistic and musical talent in Gozo while interpreting a story relevant to the island. Participants will develop further their particular skills, be they acting, dancing, playing musical instruments and singing.
Malta and Gozo residents as well as tourists will be encouraged to attend. The musical shall offer the audience a full evening entertainment package. Transport also available at the ferry and from various hotels and B&Bs. A meal at a chosen restaurant will follow each show. At the conclusion transport will be available for the guests.
Island of Enchantment is a fresh musical take on the locally relevant Ulysses-Calypso narrative. Nonetheless, the members of Gozo Live are confident that their Gozitan based musical could be staged anywhere in the world. The Valletta 2018 Foundation hopes that performing the musical to a wide audience will open them up opportunities for enchanting new audiences abroad.
