In the 1590’s chiaroscuro artist Michelangelo Merisi from the town of Caravaggio makes his way to Rome with dreams of establishing himself as one of the leading artists of the time. His raw talent is undeniable and success swiftly comes his way. However, his passion and volatile temper earn him as many enemies as he has admirers. At the height of his fame, an impulsive outburst with lethal consequences causes him to flee the city as an outlaw.
The Knights of Malta offer redemption through patronage and refuge from his foes on an island fortress – but his real enemies are the ones he cannot escape from. His tortured soul that enables him to produce celebrated masterpieces provides him no peace as it pulls him towards his inevitable destiny.
Caravaggio the Musical marks the first time that the master painter’s life story has been depicted in the form of a stage musical. Composed by Paul Abela with Book and Lyrics by Joe Julian Farrugia, the show is directed by Malcolm Galea at the Mediterranean Conference Centre.
