DLS Productions are proud to present Belliegħa, an original rock musical.
From the team that brought you Carmen: The Rock Musical and A War to End All Wars, DLS Productions will be performing Belliegħa: Rockin’ The Underworld on the 16th and 17th of September at Pjazza Teatru Rjal.
Belliegħa tells a thrilling tale set in 16th century Malta, where mischievous monsters upend the tranquil lives of the local nobility. This original story is brought to life through the very best of classical rock music with a masterful live band, an eighty-strong cast of talented performers, stunning choreography, and a dazzling digital backdrop and light setup.
The story revolves around the Inguanez family and their three children: Lucia, Maria and Tinu. Lucia, the eldest, is betrothed to a young noble, Mikiel, despite being secretly in love with Ġamri, the baker’s son, and the Inguanez family is confronted with a peculiar love triangle. Disaster strikes when the two younger children go missing, pulled down a well by Belliegħa, who’s bored of her dull, monotonous life.
Maria and Tinu find themselves in the underworld, home of forgotten mythical Maltese creatures, such as Babaw, Sarangu and Saħħara. Secrets come to light and the promise of hope returns, but the search for the children causes imbalance and shatters the barriers between the two worlds.
This production is a rock musical with an original script by local playwrights, incorporating the music of infamous rock bands such as Bon Jovi, Pink Floyd, Simon and Garfunkel and many more. The project combines the efforts of many talented artists, and is under the distinguished patronage of Her Excellency, Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca, President of Malta.
This is a show for all the family, and the script and songs will be performed in the English language. Tickets are priced at €20 and €25 and can be be purchased here.
