The “Nissena Philharmonic” from Italy conducted by Alexei Galea Cavallazzi shall accompany Maltese soprano Marvic Baldacchino and Italian baritone Salvatore Salvaggio in a programme of popular arias by some of the most loved composers of the genre. The orchestra and conductor shall also take centre stage for some of the most beautiful opereatic overtures in the repertoire. This concert shall also feature vocal and orchestral works which are not operatic but have been included because of their popularity. The Mediterranean conference Centre is being supported by Zarattini International limited and by the European Foundation for support of culture. This is a family event which will be enjoyable to professional musicians and music lovers  alike. With a predominance of Italian operatic exerpts this will surely be an event not to be missed.
