“Mouse trap!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

A fantastic little theatre - our trip happened to coincide with 60th birthday of the Agatha Christies Mouse Trap which we had not seen. A great production.

“On an historic stage.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

How often can you attend a performance at a theatre that has been in use since 1732? The Manoel Theatre has been beautifully restored and features stage or music productions every week, and every day on occasional weeks. There was a concert during our week in Valletta and we thoroughly enjoyed both the performance and visiting this unique building.

“Well worth a visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Ideally visited to see a performance, the audio self-guided tour is good and a quicker alternative that allows you to learn something of the history of this theatre. Finally you reach the auditorium where you can enjoy the beautiful baroque architecture and decoration.

“Good Choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

The theatre auditorium is splendid. The history of the theatre (originally built in 1731) is very interesting. The visit includes an audio guide through the museum and then into the auditorium. The museum was a bit of a mixed bag but overall worth seeing. But the inside of the theatre was the special bit.
