The building is a stage for opera and theatre for the people of Malta. Resting atop the stony remains of the Royal Opera House ruins, it is like a sculpture on a plinth. And like a giant gramophone, it amplifies the orchestral sound onto adjacent streets and into Freedom square, which becomes the auditorium.The building is equipped with its own airship. Rising into heights that can be seen from far beyond the city walls, it is a symbol of celebration and like a silent church bell draws in the crowds.
