For the first time ever, Cirque du Soleil will present an exclusive and original live performance in Malta for the 40th Anniversary of the Mediterranean Conference Centre in the historic city of Valletta.
The high-energy acrobatics of VITORI are guaranteed to thrill audiences in the first of a series of annual shows destined for Malta.
In the classic game of chess, each piece can be sacrificed to save the King. But VITORI is not your typical chess game, so when a gentle yet reckless King falls head over heels for one of the Rooks on the opposing team, ready to sacrifice all in the name of love, he creates mayhem in this rigid and highly structured world.
Vitori mobilizes a cast of characters inspired by the pieces in the game of chess, the ultimate game of logic and rational thinking. Brimming with talent and torque, two teams go head to head on a huge chessboard, ready to wage a battle to the end. But when the golden King falls in love with the black Rook, he puts everything in the balance to get closer to his beloved, leaving his unsuspecting subjects in total disarray.
As he bends over backwards to get closer to his love, the golden King—who happens to be a cello virtuoso—must deal with the onslaught of the opposing team led by a pretentious and narcissistic monarch and his fearsome queen. Surrounded by hilarious Bishops on roller-skates, Knights as bright as they are proud, obliging Pawns who can be manipulated at will, and a majestic Rook who is a master at pole dancing, will the golden King’s love be requited at last?
