Shakespeare in Malta

Shakespeare made an appearance in Vittoriosa last month at the Lorenzo Gafà Boys' Secondary School annual Prize Day.

Staff and students of the school presented excerpts from The Merchant of Venice in Maltese, translated by Cyprian Dalli, following months of rehearsals during school breaks.

The school band and choir, made up of staff members, students, former students, parents and friends of the school performed and were followed by a less traditional but energetic breakdance show.

The effort and commitment put in by staff and students to ensure a successful Prize Day production was praised by the Education Minister, Dr Louis Galea, who in a short speech said the performance was a successful start for this scholastic year.

Prizes were then presented to prize winners by the Director-General of Education, Dr Cecilia Borg.
