The MADC – Malta’s longest-established theatre company – will stage The Tempest as its annual Shakespeare play at San Anton Gardens, from 29 June to 8 July 2019.
As Shakespeare’s last play, The Tempest tells the story of power struggles, magic and love on a remote island, and will be given a unique twist in the MADC production with a female playing the traditionally male lead role of Prospero – now, Prospera.
Performed in English, MADC’s The Tempest will be set against the stunning outdoor backdrop of San Anton Gardens, and the staging even includes a water pool for the production.
THE TEMPEST features Kate de Cesare in the role of Prospera together with Philip Leone-Ganado, Victor Debono, Julia Camilleri, Gabriela Mendez, Michela Farrugia, Matthew Ben Attard, James Camilleri and Edward Thorpe in some of the leading roles.
MADC presents THE TEMPEST by William Shakespeare at San Anton Gardens, Attard on 29, 30 June and 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 July 2019, with all shows starting at 8.30pm. Opening night tickets at only Euro15. This production is suitable for general audiences and children aged six and over.
