@ The Old Opera House, Valletta
Tuesday 8th August 2006

Musical Director:   Mark Spiteri Lucas
Choreographer:   Celaine Buhagiar
Set Design:     Victor Scerri

Following a sting of successful musical productions, Spiteri Lucas Entertainment made its debut in the prestigious Malta Arts Festival, and in collaboration with the Malta Council for Culture and the Arts, presented yet another spectacular live show featuring some of the most memorable tunes from the 50s and 60s, regarded by many as the Golden Age of Pop Music.   

This production was staged "open-air" at the historical Old Opera House (Teatru Rjal) in Valletta. It surely gave the 1200 fully packed theatre the opportunity to enjoy some golden hits from the past. From rock 'n' roll numbers such as "Blue Suede Shoes", "Hound Dog" and "Rock Around the Clock" to beautiful ballads like the evergreen "Can't Stop Loving You", "Blueberry Hill", "Only You", and "The Great Pretender". From hit tunes such as "Stand by Me", "Summer Holiday" and "Diana", to sing along melodies like "That's Amore" and "Volare". The latin feel of the 50s was also present with "Tequila", "Sway" and "Kiss me Honey" amongst others.

For this important event, Spiter Lucas Entertainment (SLE) assembled a star studded cast with talented and established artists like Julie and Ludwig, Debbie Scerri, Glen Vella, Antonello Persiano, Triccas, Nadine Axisa, Leontine, Ivan Spiteri Lucas, Neville Refalo, Maria Mallia and young Christabelle Borg.  All artists were accompanied by a seven piece band under the direction of Mark Spiteri Lucas (piano). The other band members were Kurt Spiteri Lucas (keyboards), Jesmond Baldacchino (drums), Joe M. Vella (bass), Fabio Caligari (guitar), Ray Cutajar (trumpet) and Joe "Pops" Muscat (saxophone). Celaine Buhagiar and her Dancel Dancers was in charge of choreography while Victor Scerri created the set design.
