O. pening Night

There’s something extremely poetic about the air at Teatru Manoel right now. It doesn’t just boil down to the immensely talented performers that are gracing our national theatre stage, and the creatives that have woven each element of this captivating show together in honor of Maltese literary great Oliver Friggieri.

The air is lighter, and sweeter, because we have spent the better part of the past year stuck working behind our home desks or interacting with one another in calculated numbers in masks, unable to share a hug or so much as a smile.

As we stood at the premiere of our first production, since L-Interrogazzjoni, we couldn’t help but feel happy for being able to be here again today, fortunate for having made it through, and grateful to be able to continue doing what we do best… bringing theatre to our audiences one venue at a time. This is something we have not taken for granted.

Thank you for coming back, we have truly missed you.

O. will run until Tuesday 2nd November 2021, for more information and to book your tickets please click here
