25th anniversary of Local Councils celebrated with musical at Mellieħa

Various initiatives were organized to celebrate the 25th anniversary since the establishment of Local Councils in Malta. The Mellieħa Local Council came out with the original idea of a musical. Following six months of preparations, the musical Naħal tal-Imħabba was performed this weekend and will be remembered for its dialect which is fading away.

The story evolves in Mellieħa where Viktor, a locality youth fixated on the drone, visits his grandmother at the ‘Madonna tal-Mellieħa residential homes. Nurse Fatima, a refugee who was brought up in the locality, works at the home and Viktor is attracted to her despite that he is engaged with Sara.

Author Paul P. Borg says “she wants his love, however does not want to hurt him. Meanwhile, he also does not want to hurt the love of the Mellieħa girl”.

Composer Philip Vella said that he had to select musical pieces from many lyrics to build the composition adapted for the musical, which he was delighted to perform. The musical was directed by Gianni Attard.

Mellieħa Mayor, John Buttigieg, said that the musical will be a heritage for future generations. “Through this musical, many Maltese words, especially those with the Mellieħa dialect, will be remembered”.
