Valletta 2018 – Grand Spectacular Opening of the European Capital of Culture

 

The official inauguration of Malta’s capital city Valletta as the European Capital of Culture – Valletta 2018 was certainly a huge success.

Celebrated on Saturday in four main squares of the capital, in this post, we will focus upon what happened in St. John Square, Valletta.

In fact it was definitely a fantastic choral symphony with music composed by Elton Zarb and with a choir directed by Pamela Bezzina as well as a creative illumination and graphics were projected on the very old fascade of St. John’s Co-Cathedral in Valletta.

The videos and pictures certainly do not do justice for the superb work to create such a synchronisation of music and lighting effects with the amazing choir’s singing.
