WATCH: Yesterday’s Grand Harbour spectacular

Yesterday the Grand Harbour was transformed into a sea of colour and spectacle as it hosted the Valletta Pageant of the Seas. Fondazzjoni V18 estimated that the event attracted 50,000 people, turning the harbour into a giant stage with the participation of 640 local and foreign artists. The spectacle continued for over six hours and was one of the largest in Valletta 2018’s schedule of events from a programme of 400 events spread throughout the year.

From early afternoon thousands of spectators began to congregate along the Valletta and Cottonera waterfronts to enable them to get a good view of all the proceedings that included structured choreography representing Venere Malta in prehistoric times. Various Maltese acrobats in the spectacle had trained with foreign acrobats from the Spanish theatrical group La Fura Dels Baus.

The night spectacle included a water curtain provided by audiovisuals. The event came to an end with a fireworks spectacular from various parts of the harbour. The idea is that this pageant be staged every other year as the legacy of Valletta’s year as European Capital for Culture.

The Valletta Pageant of the Seas will be transmitted on Sunday from 9pm onwards on TVM2.
