The island of Gozo has two opera houses in Victoria ( Ir-Rabat ): the Astra Theatre, and the Aurora Opera House. Each puts on at least one fully staged opera a year, often with international soloists.

The existence of Gozo’s buzzing opera scene may come as a surprise to many, but with some of the world’s biggest stars performing here on a yearly basis, the island has become an international hub for the art.
