Set in the Pacific on the eve of World War I, the narrative follows the daring adventures of Corto Maltese, a sea captain and occasional pirate with a lust for travel, treasure and adventure.

Audiences won’t want to miss the chance to catch this swash-buckling adaptation of the original storyline where our dapper sailor meets the enigmatic character, Rasputin. This colourful production is the latest in a long-running initiative by the Teatru Manoel Youth Opera, which gives young local opera singers a platform to develop their skills while collaborating with local professionals and other European practitioners.

The opera will be held at Teatru Manoel on the 20th and 22nd September 2018. Get your tickets here!
