Vitori by Cirque du Soleil

For the very first time, Cirque du Soleil will be performing an original and exclusive show to mark the 40th anniversary of the Mediterranean Conference Centre in Valletta. The 60-minute production titled ‘Vitori’ is centred on a chess theme – the ultimate example of reason and logic – and will be the first time that Cirque du Soleil perform in Malta.


Inspired by the characters of chess, the show will see two teams battling it out on a huge chessboard. The golden King falls in love with the black Rook, risking everything to get closer to her and leaving his subjects in total disarray.

The Mediterranean Conference Centre

The venue for the spectacular show will be none other than the Mediterranean Conference Centre (MCC) in Valletta. Located within a 16th century building, the MCC is one of the capital’s most remarkable landmarks situated at the tip of Valletta’s peninsula, looking out towards to Grand Harbour. The historic building was converted into a conference centre in 1979, making this year its 40th anniversary. The innovative restoration process was awarded the ‘Europa Nostra’ prize for having expertly blended old architecture with modern technology.
