Held at the Oratory inside the historic St John’s Co-Cathedral, Valletta Resounds elegantly strings together Caravaggio masterpieces with theatrical storytelling and timeless classical music. Critically acclaimed Maltese musicians under the musical direction of Jacob Portelli are at the helm of the site-specific performance, bringing to life the works of Baroque Masters such as Handel and Bach along with the sound of sacred Maltese music by composer Francesco Azzopardi and more. Sung to perfection by some of Malta’s most esteemed sopranos, Dorothy Bezzina and Dorothy Baldacchino, the music is beautifully brought to life on Baroque Harp, Baroque Violin, Baroque Cello and on the Psaltery. This auditory delight is woven harmoniously with tales of the Oratory narrated by the ever-charming and regal character of Fra Bartolomeo performed by Jeremy Grech. The 40-minute concert starts at 18:30 with exclusive access to the Cathedral at 18:00 and can be accessed from main door in St John Street. Until the 24th of June 2023 the visit to the Co-Cathedral also includes the viewing in situ of the set of 29 Tapestries based on cartoons by the renowned artist Peter Paul Rubens, exhibited after an extensive restoration process that lasted 16 years. The last time they were displayed was during Pope St John Paul II’s visit to Malta in 1990.
