From the team that brought you the multi-award winning Panto in the Dark series, comes a brand new queer musical experience set in complete darkness.Teatru Malta is proud to present AURA, a Musical in the Dark, produced in collaboration with Europride and Esplora. This multi-sensory immersive experience will take you on a journey to Aura, a magical island where anything is possible.

Join Lu’ as she navigates her biggest adventure yet with her dads, her unlikely friend Peppa and all the magical creatures in Aura including singing Jellyfish, a wise Octopus and a bird with attitude. This celebration of life’s complexities will feature live performances on a binaural microphone, multi-sensory effects and lots of surprises making it a unique experience like none other.

With an original concept and script by Vikesh Godhwani & Marta Vella, music and lyrics by Luke Saydon, and sound design by Matteo Depares, this show promises to be a highlight of the theatrical season.
