|Madama Butterfly - October 2012|
As the curtain raises on the opening night of "Norma" and the 10th edition of Festival Mediterranea, Teatru Astra is pleased to announce the title of the opera production for the festival in 2012 - Giacomo Puccini's "Madama Butterfly". Teatru Astra will stick to its 10-year tradition of putting up the opera on the last Saturday of October and the Thursday preceding it, with the dates chosen for next year being 25 and 27 October 2012. The opera is expected to open what will be the 11th edition of this annual festival of culture that seeks to expose that which the island of Gozo is well-known for in the cultural field: opera, music, history, archaeology, trades and traditions.
