Event description

Description

A concert that describes the extraordinary events leading up to and including The Great Ottoman Siege of Malta in 1565. Beautiful music composed by Skorba and wonderful visuals that accompany each of the pieces performed.

This is a compelling story of two childhood friends who become separated by Corsairs who take one into slavery. He returns to an unforeseen fate on the shores of Malta as a Janissary. He comes with the invading forces and meets his childhood friend 20 years later in the final battle.

A story of sorrow and perseverance in the face of overwhelming odds. The futility of the war between the faiths started with the 1st Crusade in 1082 and one that continues to this day.

Lunch will be available for purchase from 12:00 noon onwards. Catering including Maltese food.

This concert has been created in collaboration between Andy Busuttil of Skorba, Maltese Cultural Association and La Valette Social Centre, Blacktown.
