Streamed online, the project shall present a multi-disciplinary experience away from the concert hall showcasing different musical perspectives inspired by summer nights.

Mezzo soprano Marvic Monreal tackles an eclectic programme juxtaposing renowned popular classics with operatic numbers. Organically, the works are linked by romance, highlighting its wide-ranging facets. These include Bésame Mucho, the most performed Mexican song in the world soliciting feelings of love at night-time and Cuando la Luna, often interpreted as alluding to forbidden love.

The project will also present:

F’Dirgħajk (In Your Arms), a crowdsourcing platform featuring a video series of love stories directed and curated by Alex Vella Gregory.

These will be presented on digital and social media between the 7th and 13th of June, 2020.
