‘Cantata’ Open Rehearsal


Saturday 20th January 2024, 14:00

ŻfinMalta Studios, Valletta


On the 20th January, join us at ŻfinMalta studios for a behind-the-scenes rehearsal of ‘Cantata’ by the inimitable Mauro Bigonzetti.  This Open Rehearsal is led by ŻfinMalta rehearsal director Brenda Lee Grech and features Vincenzo Capezzuto, assistant to choreographer Mauro Bigonzetti and former soloist of Aterballetto, Teatro San Carlo and Ballet Argentino.


‘Cantata’ forms part of our incredible ŻfinDays Double Bill which premieres this February, and is Bigonzetti’s personal quest to read and recover the traditional musical heritage of Southern Italy. The passionate and visceral gestures of the choreography are evocative of its wild, Mediterranean origins.


Don’t miss this opportunity to catch the dancers of ŻfinMalta National Dance Company in rehearsal with Vincenzo Capezzuto, and gain insights into the re-staging process of this iconic work, as well as a chance to speak to those involved in the artistic team.


‘Cantata’ is supported by the Italian Cultural Institute of Valletta.



Entrance to this Open Rehearsal is 5 if you haven’t booked your ticket to the performance.
