Lord Strickland who was Prime Minister of Malta in early part of the 20th
century and his daughter Mabel Strickland who ran The Times of Malta. Villa
Bologna will open its doors to the public who will savor the grandeur and charm
of the Villa, one of the last bastions of a fleeting world of elegance, sophistication
Operatic Elegance is going to
present three well-known performers in the Maltese classic music scene: soprano
, tenor Joseph Aquilina
and pianist Ramona Zammit Formosa.

celebration of the elegant world of opera as the programme will focus on an
eclectic repertoire of operatic arias. The programme will include arias from
the operas of Puccini's Tosca
, Giordano's Fedora, Donizetti's Elizir d' Amour Mefistofele.
