Erin Brockovich: Film Screening and Discussion (26 Mar.)



17 March 2015

MPO Concert Series (26 Mar.)


For the fourth concert in the MPO Concert Series, MPO resident conductor Michael Laus will be directing works from three pillars of the Romantic Era. 

Wagner’s Rienzi, which became his first success, making his name and giving him a position, celebrates the exploits, trials and tribulations of the last Roman tribune, who in Wagner’s eyes, was considered to be the first bourgeois terrorist. The Overture to the opera is substantial, what one could rightly call a work of Wagnerian proportions! 

Bruch’s Double Concerto originally for clarinet and viola, was written at the end of 1911. It features lush melodies and beautiful exchanges between the two instruments. The violin and viola combination adds a different texture than the original, whilst retaining its exquisite beauty. 

Tchaikovsky’s regarded his 4th Symphony Tchaikovsky as an “imitation of the basic idea of Beethoven’s Fifth”, and indeed both are “about Fate”

“Destiny, that fateful force which impedes the impulse toward fulfilment, which jealously ensures that prosperity and peace are never complete and cloudless, which hangs overhead like a sword of Damocles. It is invincible and you will never vanquish it. All that we can do is subject ourselves and vainly lament.” – Tchaikovsky 

This concert is dedicated to the memory of the late Stephen Galea, former MPO viola Principal.

Allegory & Spiritual Life (20-22 Mar.)

Allegory & Spiritual Life' will be held between 20 and 22 March.

In the school of life the allegorical praxis is unavoidable. It is employed as an interpretive tool, and as an agent of meaning making. It doesn’t require much effort to value the beauty of allegory, but it does entail some degree of critical thinking to appreciate it’s footsteps in history, literature, art and people’s stories. Due to its flexibility it can be easily employed in diverse academic arenas conveying various, and sometimes even conflicting meanings.

'Allegory and Spirituality Life' is an introductory seminar wherein the essentials about allegory and its relations to spirituality are presented. It aims to present basic notions surrounding allegory, and how it is employed in depicting feelings, values, meanings and desires. At its core this seminar tries to appreciate how allegory is employed as a constructive/deconstructive agent for personal authenticity and social integration.

Interested participants for this seminar are invited to send an email or call on +356 79791881.

Minn ġot-taġen għal ġon-nar (14, 15 Mar.)

Atturi Salesjani present the comedy by John Schembri under the direction of Joe Bonello

Minn ġot-taġen għal ġon-nar

on Saturday 14 March at 1930hrs and Sunday 14 March at 1830hrs

Minn ġot-taġen għal ġon-nar

L-Atturi Salesjani jippreżentaw kummiedja ta' John Schembri, b'direzzjoni ta' Joe Bonello. 

Erġajna ninsabu fil-kunvent, sena wara li l-kappillan kien irnexxielu jeħles minn il-Fra Żaren, li dejjem lest li jivvinta xi bawxata wara l-oħra.

Iżda l-kappillan ma setax joqgħod bi kwietu billi s-sangristan, wara t-tluq ta' Fra Żaren, ma setax ilaħħaq max-xogħol u dejjem talab lil kappillan għall- għajnuna. Bl-għajnuna ta' Wenzu, ħabib kbir ta' Fra Żaren, naraw lill-istess Fra lura fil-kunvent. Il-kappillan jibqa ċċassat malli jarah lura l-kunvent.

 Din id-darba ser nassistu għal bawxata oħra akbar ta' Fra Żaren bl-għajnuna ta' Wenzu u s-sangristan, hekk kif il-kappillan irnexxielu jsib min iħallaslu l-pittura tal-koppla.
