An amazing little theatre with fantastic decorative qualities. We went to a concert which was excellent. Sitting in a golden box viewing chandeliers and listening to Beethoven. Wonderful.

This is a very ol;d and very pretty theatre, and certainly worth a tour, but manu seats are hard benches and have very little view of the stage. personally would enjoy a tour there more than a performance

I think the other reviews have given a fair picture of the theatre but there is one aspect that hasn't been mentioned. A few years ago I was in Valletta in high summer when the theatre is dark. Walking past I noticed a small poster advertising a performance of the classic silent movie St Joan to be shown in the open air courtyard. What a fantastic evening it turned out to be. Accompanying the film were 3 brilliant young musicians; one playing the piano, another on viola and violin and the third playing the oboe, clarinet, bassoon and flute. The cafe bar was open and waiters came round the tables delivering bottles of chilled wine. It was such a good evening that, after the film, it turned out to be quite a party with over half the audience staying on to chat and have more wine until the early hours. The cost was only a few € and another couple in a collection for the musicians. A wonderful time.
