For Teatru Manoel in Valletta, Malta I wrote the opera 'Corto Maltese, the Ballad of the Salty Sea' based on the graphic novel by Hugo Pratt on a libretto by Corina van Eijk. Created especially for the singers of the Manoel Opera Studio called 'ToiToi' who were the most wonderful cast imaginable!! Photos below from the opera ©Teatru Manoel with the beautiful drawings from the comic.
