Mysteries and scary stories fascinate children and adults alike, and in this year’s edition of the annual Family Fanfare concert, the MPO will be exploring a dark musical world in an interactive concert under the direction of Robert Hodge.
Featuring great classical works and iconic soundtracks written to evoke a sense of mystery, magic and fear, such as the Night on Bald Mountain made famous through Disney’s Fantasia and John Williams’ brilliant musical depiction of an approaching shark for Jaws, this interactive concert will help highlight just how strongly the right piece of music can make us feel.
LOCATION: Teatru Manoel, Valletta
