Teatru Malta will be staging once again the children’s musical, Il-Qtates ta’ max-xatt, at Esplora Interactive Science Centre in Kalkara next month.

The heart-warming puppet show is an adaptation of Clare Azzopardi’s book of the same name. The story will be interpreted in the form of an opera and will explore the sensitive subject of loss through the eyes of a group of singing stray cats who struggle to come to terms with the ‘disappearance’ of two of the most important people in their life.

This short show will be open to families on February 24 and 25 at 9 and 11am. It is suitable for children aged six to 10.
