This year being the 17th edition, this Festival is a celebration of culture, having Gozo as its beautiful island backdrop. Mythology has it that the charm of this island aided the beautiful nymph Calypso to halt Ulysses on his journeys and lure him away from his travels for seven mystical years. Today, Gozo’s charm seeks to lure its visitors into a kaleidoscope of cultural events, highlighted by the celebrations of the arts in such festivals as the Mediterranea, organised by Teatru Astra.
The spectacular presentation of Gaetano Donizetti’s opera- Lucia di Lammermoor- is undoubtedly the highlight of this Festival. There will be a double representation of this opera on the 26th and 28th October 2017.
Gozo’s Teatru Astra enjoys a well-established tradition of excellence, with the engagement of an internationally renowned cast, a fantastic opera chorus, imposing sets and scenery, outstanding costumes and spectacular lights.
