The concert will take place in the main square of Santa Luċija, Gozo.

On July 6, the quaint Santa Luċija Square in Gozo will host internationally-acclaimed baritone Charles Buttigieg, for an evening of opera, Maltese and Neapolitan classics, and other popular songs.

Buttigieg will be accompanied by new talent Ilyas Ige Sultana, American mezzo-soprano Katherine Dobbs, soprano Miriam Cauchi, X-Factor judge and singer Gianluca Bezzina, Schola Cantorum Jubilate and a live orchestra under the direction of Mro. Mark Gauci.

The baritone singer has been making a name for himself both locally and abroad. Having recently accompanied Joseph Calleja and Andrea Bocelli in the Christmas Special, Charles’ musical journey started at the tender age of 11 when his talent was discovered by the parish priest.

This year’s concert repertoire features diverse iconic opera pieces from La Traviata, Carmen, Rigoletto, and Tosca, beloved Neapolitan pieces such as Canta Napule, and more recent and contemporary pieces, including New York New York and A Million Dreams.

Entrance to Charles Buttigieg in Concert is free. Attendees will have the opportunity to donate to The Malta Community Chest Fund Foundation. Charles Buttigieg in Concert is being organised by the Cultural Heritage Directorate within the Ministry for Gozo and Planning.
