Le Pauvre Matelot in Strada Stretta

12:30 AM - 3:30 AM

Le Pauvre Matelot in Strada Stretta

Through Arcal Lyrique, founder and director Christian Gangneron creates projects specifically designed for non-traditional spaces for performance, thus interacting with the audience beyond the barriers implied with a stage.

Originally created by Darius Milhaud (1892-1974) with the libretto written by Jean Cocteau (1889-1963), the opera comprises of three acts and unfolds in a dramatic sequence of events. The performance of Le Pauvre Matelot by Arcal Lyrique is to mark its second run in the Maltese islands, with the first being held in March 2009 as part of the BOV Opera Festival, held in the foyer of the Manoel Theatre at the time. Whilst not only targeting opera-lovers, this year’s rendition is to take on Strada Stretta as its non-traditional performance space, with a dynamic and contemporary version of this classic opera.
