We've today learnt details of Roger's next live outing of his forthcoming opera, Ca Ira.

He is scheduled to play 15 minutes of the piece during Malta's EU entry celebrations on the evening of Friday, April 30th. Roger was asked to write a song for the event late last year but after some negotiation, he has now agreed to the airing of part of his opera there instead. There have also been wranglings within Malta itself as to who was awarded the contract for the event - and indeed, it appears that one of the unlucky companies may be launching legal action to protest against losing out.

The concert itself will be held at the Grand Harbour, pictured to the right. The opera will be accompanied by a manifestation of light, courtesy of world-renowned German Gert Hof, who is known for his spectacular and unique works of art. The event will run from 8.30pm to 12.30am.

The Grand Harbour will initially be split into six different stages featuring several local bands and musicians. The event will be televised live on Maltese TV, as Malta counts down to its introduction into the EU on May 1st. The event will be free, except for special tickets and VIPs, who will sit at the front of the stage. This will be the second live performance of (part of) Ca Ira - the first being at the Royal Albert Hall on October 16th 2002... We are hoping to report on complete live performances of the piece soon, as negotiations are currently underway with various venues in Europe.
