Even though an opera is a theatrical form expressed within the theatre environment for centuries, the opera film is a rather new form of art. Until recently, the opera's composer would be passing his instructions to the cast. There was only one Carmen, or one Magic Flute. However, not that long ago, the stage director became increasingly important. With the introduction of an Opera Film, the opera world has become an increasingly complex art form.

To enjoy it, the audience must recognize opera as a multidimensional art performed by singers not actors. The director must remain true to the work, to the composer and the musical language used. This is a three-dimensional art not attempted by many.

Directing an opera film, the director must show the full appreciation for the talents, principal singers, dancers, chorus and stay true to the visuals. We find that not only the stories, but the music and the very form itself has to be reinvented.

 

 

BLAT: The Island Fortress was the project by the Mikiel Anton Vassalli as the executive producer.

The opera-film was composed by Dr Reuben Pace with lyrics written by Gorg Peresso and Amy Borg. The film was written and directed by Alan Fenech.

Opera films are the most difficult genre to engage in. A first ever opera in Maltese, Blat: The Island Fortress, was a brave endeavour. New stages in artistic development lead to new dynamics, and critics should understand the new challenges that the operatic theatre has created. An authentic opera with its own music, script and staging, in which each stage of the process has been carefully performed always brings unique challenges. New stage interpretations of classical operas were perceived by many as a breath of fresh air.

In this new situation, the director takes precedence, not only in the stage presentation of the operatic score, but also in the development of opera as an art form and, finally, in the communication with the audience.

ĊIKLU as a youth-for-youth stage production at Malta Manuel Theatre
Tree of Life - Nataša Pantović Nuit

 by Nataša Pantović

It perhaps takes a special kind of courage to perform at Malta’s National Theatre, Manuel Theatre, built in 1731 by the Knights of St. John, in one of the oldest working theatres in Europe, as a young 18-25 year old artist staging a Maltese production. There they are, handling a space and expectation of audience that has seen arguably the greatest shows of Malta, but still working with amazing 'but we think we can make an extraordinary piece of music theatre...’

Introducing tales from 21st Century women, set to lyrics, music and dance highlighted contemporary social issues. Without using the obvious, subtly but significantly tweaking the story interpretation, reunited with the nuclear family in the production. Led by their teacher’s motto: “There is nothing more beautiful than giving your soul to the audience:” the performers were able to zoom in and out and tell a bigger story of individuals and about community

We were invited to join a 70 minute journey through various life struggles as the young cast of opera singers and dancers experimented with contemporary youth opera and dance, inviting the audience to join the conversation.

Metaphysics of Sound: In Search of the Name of God - Nataša Pantović Nuit
Tree of Life - Nataša Pantović Nuit
Spiritual Symbols With their Meanings - Nataša Pantović Nuit
Conscious Creativity: Mindfulness Meditations - Nataša Pantović Nuit

New Book LAUNCH #Novel: Metaphysics of Sound: In Search of Name of God at the National Book Council (Malta) event "Book Festival 2022" at the University of Malta. In March 2022 Artof4Elements has presented 2 #newbooks launched in Malta this year: Spring by Dr #RudolfRagonesi (Gaia Founder), Book of Aphorisms #1: Standing on the Banks; and Metaphysics of Sound: In Search of the Name of #God by #NatašaPantović “Metaphysics of Sound: In Search of the Name of God”, is a 2022 historical novel written by Maltese / Serbian author Nataša Pantović. The book is Nataša's 9th book and 3rd novel written under her own name (she has also written a poetry book under the pseudonym Nuit) and was released in March 2022 during Malta's Book Festival. Thx for the Music Norman Cristina and to all the creative souls infused by an artistic spirit involved in this amazing gathering. The title of the book is: “Metaphysics of Sound: in Search of the Name of God”, subtitled “A Brief History of the World beyond the Usual”, aims at, according to the Author "comprehending the history of Balkans and Slavs within Europe from the development of the languages perspective". The novel is divided into two parts, both of which are narrated by Ivana Šeravac when she is retired and living alone, and by the Author. The first part begins with the meeting of Ivana and David, on a train journey to a famous Montenegro’s monastery Ostrog, of whom three feature in the remainder of the story: Author, as the narrator, David Archer, and Ivana, who is doing her life-long research in sound and the development of alphabets. The two discuss the philosophical background of two major Ancient Europe’s thought forms – liberals and conservatives, democratic and monarchy-ruled, Greek-links and Romans, Slavic and Germanic. David has a Phd from the Cambridge University and Ivana stays a mum, determined not to let go of her research passion. At this point Nataša's narration of the second part of the novel – which is twice as long as the first – begins, it is a historical journey through sounds, followed by the "classical antiquity" with the Hellenistic, Eastern European history in the Ancient Mediterranean, from the beginning of recorded Ancient Greek history in 776 BC. This roughly coincides with the Golden period in Ancient Greece in Balkan. Following the development of the languages researching the Ancient Egyptian Rosetta Stone, the Ancient Homeric Ionic Greek, Nataša uses the Slavic Cyrillic script to map the oldest Phoenician Alphabet to the European development of languages. “In search of the Name of God” we follow Nataša’s life-long research into the oldest recorded history of Malta, the 21 symbols of Ancient Serbian Vinča’s pottery, the 1st ever published Sumerian Liturgy for the Moon Goddess SiN by a Sumerian Priestess, Ancient Greek Herodotus and his encounter of Slavs, the Orphic Rituals with its Text of Derveni Papyrus from Macedonia, and the spread of the Dio-Nysus cult in the European Balkan. This accessible and entertaining summary of Nataša Pantović's alternative history ideas is bound to expand minds of researchers of ancient history, providing a kind of un-filtered theory of the Western and Eastern development of thoughts. We explore Vinča Neolithic (Serbian Danube) pottery scripts, sophisticated carved statues signs, 100s of Canaan letters, Phoenicians Arabic, Ionic, Cyrillic, Aramaic, Chinese, Hebrew. “Sinai inscriptions” of 1480 BC offer evidence that 22 Egyptian hieroglyphic symbols were borrowed to form the characters of the future alphabets. The Book of the Dead, “Emerging Forth into the Light”, with magic spells helping the dead King or Queen take the place amongst the gods, reuniting with divine father Ra, or mother aNX. Most sub-texts begin with the word Ro, which can mean "mouth," or "Word" or “Logos”. For the visual lovers, they were individual papyri joined together size 15 cm to 45 cm. So tinny! A detailed scene, from Papyrus of Hunefer 1285 BC, in British Museum, shows the heart weighed on the scale of Maat against feather of truth with: I did Not Kill, etc. later adopted as 10 commandments. Exploring ancient worlds further, Ancient Egypt, Greece, Ancient Europe, India, China, Balkan to understand advanced Neolithic civilizations, the sounds frequency of esoteric words & ancient names of Gods. 5,000 BC the Mediterranean region was the center of world!
