The Valletta International Baroque Festival was developed as a celebration of the baroque identity of Valletta. For two weeks, between the 16th and the 30th of January 2016, Valletta will resound with music from the period of when it was built.

Teatru Manoel will become the heart of this festival, however other venues are opening their doors for this event such as St. John’s Co-Cathedral, the Jesuits’ Church, The President’s Palace, St. Nicholas (All Souls) Church, Ta’ Ġieżu Church, the Bibliotheca (National Library of Malta), the Casino Maltese and St. Paul’s Anglican Pro-Cathedral.

The fourth version of this festival, like the previous ones, incorporates an eclectic variety of music including pianistic transcriptions and 20th century orchestral music inspired by the baroque idiom.
