Event Details

Freddie Portelli needs no introduction. He is a national institution. To many a generation, he is the man who made Maltese rock n’ roll sound awesome, something unheard of at the time.

So, Malta, hold on tight for the jukebox musical with all the hits of Freddie Portelli. Famous Juke Box musicals around the world include Queen’s We Will Rock You and Abba’s Mamma Mia. Now, we’re going to have our very own Il-Kbir Għadu Ġej. And some of Malta’s best talent is lined up for the show.

The original story of the musical is being penned by local heavyweight Malcolm Galea, whilst Sean Buhagiar will be back on the director’s seat for a musical theatre show following his success with the sold-out show Balzunetta Towers. The musical arrangements and live band will be under the direction of Mro. Dominic Galea himself. Many of Freddie Portelli’s songs are part of the country’s collective memory; Mur Ħallini being arguably the best-known Maltese rock n ’roll song ever written.

The musical will feature many other known hits like Viva Malta, Xewqat Sbieħ, Se Jkolli Nemmen and Għal Dejjem but it will also lesser known jewels like Bħalek hawn kemm trid, Ma taħraqni B’xejn and Dak ir-Rock n’ Roll. Featuring the likes of Kevin Borg, Amber, Davide Tucci, Marilena, Luke Dalli, Max Dingli, Colin Fitz Mark Tonna, Leontine, Taryn Mamo Cefai, Michela Galea, Petra, Frank Zammit and many others, Il-Kbir Għadu Ġej is touted to be the theatrical event of the year. It will premiere at Mediterranean Conference Centre in August 2019 on the 9th August and running for two weekends. The venue will be fully air-conditioned.

This event is supported by Arts Council Malta, Kinnie, APS Bank, Transport Malta and PBS Malta.

Freddie Portelli m’għandu bzonn l-ebda’ introduzzjoni. Tista’ tgħid li huwa prattikament istituzzjoni nazzjonali. Fl-2019, il-mużika ta’ Freddie Portelli se ssir musical. Diġa hemm ħafna eċitament għal dan il-jukebox musical bil-hits kollha ta’ Freddie Portelli. Iva – se jkollna tista’ tgħid il-verzjoni Maltija ta’ xi ħaġa bħal We Will Rock You, il-gost a’ la Mamma Mia.

Il-musical huwa miktub minn Malcolm Galea, li huwa magħruf mhux biss bħala l-moħħ wara ħafna pantomimi ta’ suċċess izda wkoll wara l-kitba tal-musical tant popolari Porn – The Musical. Skont dak li smajna, it-tim kreattiv u l-kast se jkun imħabbar fil-ġimgħat li ġejjin, izda l-kelma qed tinxtered li dan il-musical se jkollu ismijiet kbar fuq il-palk. Sean Buhagiar se jerġa jkun fuq is-siġġu tad-direttur għal musical, wara s-suċċess li kiseb fid-direzzjoni tiegħu ta’ musical għal Balzunetta Towers.

L-arranġamenti muzikali u live band se jkunu taħt id-direzzjoni ta’ Maestro Dominic Galea nniffsu. Ħafna mill-kanzunetti ta’ Freddie Portelli huma parti mill-memorja kollettiva ta’ dan il-pajjiz; Mur Ħallini tista’ tgħoddha bħala l-aktar kanzunetta Maltija rock n’ roll magħrufa li qatt inkitbet.

Fil-musical se nisimgħu ħafna aktar suċċessi ta’ Freddie fosthom Viva Malta, Xewqat Sbieħ, Se Jkolli Nemmen u Għal Dejjem, izda se nisimgħu ukoll kanzunetti popolari oħra bħal Bħalek Hawn Kemm Trid, Ma Taħraqni B’Xejn u Dak ir-Rock ‘n’ Roll. 
 
Bis-sehem ta' Kevin Borg, Amber, Davide Tucci, Marilena, Luke Dalli, Max Dingli, Colin Fitz Mark Tonna, Leontine, Taryn Mamo Cefai, Michela Galea, Petra, Frank Zammit u ħafna oħrajn, IL-KBIR GĦADU ĠEJ se jkun qed isir f’Dar il-Mediterran - f’Awwissu 2019. Il-premier se tkun fid-9 t’Awwissu u se jkun qed jintwera għal zewġ weekends. It-teatru għandu l-arja kkundizzjonata.
 
Il-musical huwa ssuportjat mill-Kunsill Malti Għall-Arti Kinnie, APS Bank, Transport Malta u PBS Malta.
