Modern music in a baroque setting
The widely popular Teatru Unplugged returns for its 19th edition this weekend at the Manoel Theatre.
This is one of Malta’s longest annual standing events. Co-founded by Jonathan Shaw and the late Nirvana Azzopardi, this event retained the same formula throughout the years but varies in content by having different artists taking to the stage. The juxtaposition of pop, jazz, rock, folk and other genres makes for a unique and fast-moving event.
This year’s event will be hosted by Jo Caruana and the participating artists are KażinSka, Nadine Axisa, Roundhouse Kick, Swing Nuages and Red Electrick.
In memory of Azzopardi, APS Teatru Unplugged 19 will also be collecting donations and contributing towards Puttinu Cares. All those donating on the performance nights will receive a free Teatru Unplugged umbrella, also available from the Manoel Theatre booking office.
• Teatru Unplugged runs from Friday to Sunday at the Manoel Theatre in Valletta, with shows starting at 8pm. Tickets are available from www.teatrumanoel.com.mt or by calling 2124 6389.
