Artistic Director of Carols by Candlelight


by Stefan Attard

Paul Stellini PortraitFor this year concert of Carols by Candlelight, Paul A. Stellini was asked to take the role of artistic director. After discussing the repertoire and theme, Paul brought about his ideas for this eleventh edition. He wanted to create a different setting from the previous editions and focusing on the theme of Peace, he suggested that the set will have an industrial look. He will use scaffolding and LED screens projecting images and films portraying themes linked with the carols that will be interpreted during the concert.
