About Giuseppe Wolgeschaffen Malfiggiani

In the late 1870s, the impresario of the Zizinia Theatre was the well known Maltese composer, Giuseppe V. W. Malfigianni, who was the first impresario of the Royal Opera House in Valletta inaugurated on the 9th October 1866. Malfigiani was born in Malta and migrated to Alexandria with his family. During his sojourn in Alexandria, his wife passed away when she was then only 36 years old, leaving behind her nine children. Malfigianni was recalled to Malta to reorganize the Royal Opera House in Valletta, which had already been functioning since 1866.
