A brand new initiative and joint venture between the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra and Palazzo de Piro is bringing audiences the unique opportunity to experience a three-course meal alongside a fully-fledged chamber music concert in an intimate atmosphere during A Taste of the Classics.

The MPO’s Voice & Harp Trio – Britt Arend on the harp and Gillian Zammit and Clare Ghigo on vocals – will perform songs by Mozart, Bellini, Puccini, Gounod and Rossini, including ‘O mio babbino caro’ from Gianni Schicchi, ‘Voi che sapete’ and ‘Sull’aria’ from Le Nozze di Figaro, ‘Je veux vivre’ from Romeo and Juliet, and ‘Barcarolle’ from Les contes d’Hoffmann.
Dinner will be served by Infinitely Xara during pauses in the evening’s repertoire, and will comprise a starter, main course and desserts, accompanied by wine, water, tea and coffee. Patrons will be able to have their drinks throughout the performance, which will constitute a total of around 50 minutes of music.
A Taste of the Classics will be held at the Sala Panoramica of the Palazzo de Piro in Mdina on the 26th November at 7.30pm. Doors will open at 7pm. Dress code is formal. Tickets are selling at €80 per person or €600 for a table of ten, and can be purchased here.
