Valletta International #BaroqueFestival

Listen to the Moment of Baroque


Welcome to Valletta – an endless celebration of history and culture. Similar to last year, in 2019 you will find a number of reasons to visit the historic capital of Malta. One of them is especially relevant to all those in love with the works of classical era composers such as Vivaldi, Bach or Handel. Yes, we are talking about the Valletta International Baroque Festival. A firmly established event has been running for seven years now and is considered to be one of the most prestigious cultural events of the year.


Produced and managed by one of Europe’s oldest running theatres, Teatru Manoel, the forthcoming seventh edition of the festival is a promising and exciting one. The concept behind the festival is to promote the beauty of Malta’s capital city, Valletta whilst hosting a number of different musical events around beautiful, historic, baroque locations within Valletta over a 2 week period.

Baroque Festival

Valletta’s gem of Baroque art and architecture – St John’s Co-Cathedral, The Archaeology Museum, Maritime Museum, National Library of Malta and other baroque buildings are in the list of venues to appreciate in the time of the festival. The high-calibre programme for the year 2019 starts on the 11th of January and runs up until the 26th of January. With beautiful music set in classical scenarios, the event attracts both local support as well as an international audience mainly because of the household names of the star performers that are present at the event.
