AĦNA REFUĠJATI

Sep 06, 2018, 12:27 PM

‘It’s a first on so many levels’. AĦNA REFUĠJATI is an ambitious Maltese opera that tells the story of a family’s emotional and physical journey fleeing their home, in search of safety in Europe. It’s one of Valletta 2018’s key pieces of performance on their calendar. We spent time with the cast and crew getting to know about the purpose of the opera and the importance of telling current stories about refugees and migration, both to Malta and to Europe. ‘This opera is about us, the Maltese, and how many people react the same way around the world to this idea of refugees. It’s about us, how we see them.’ Mario Philip Azzopardi, Artistic Director.
