Károly, The crane for the acrobats is well rated for the load, I think there were 40 people suspended. 7000lbs. , ~3200 kilogram. A Beautiful proformance. Malta should be proud. A well done to everybody involved , from the workers, to the planners, to the artists, to the leaders, everybody, Thank You . Salute Phoenicia Hotel and MTA.
M.Buhagar thanks for the info. I am watching the programme form London. Viva Malta.
first time I have seen this one, great addition, thanks to Malta Tourism for hosting the cam and provide us with such a great view
Thanks to all who have posted photos from last night, it is also nice to see some of the previous photos. I remember the old buses terminating round the Triton fountain, hunting for thre bus to take us back to the northern part of the island.
Looking like Valletta is going to be very crowded today, 8.40 and people gathering already. Shame we cannot watch St George's Square so many of us who do not live in Malta would have loved to be part of your celebrations. Please think of us in the future.
Awesome, the Fountain crashes in the end. It would break my heart! The man in the crane, overmuch too brave or very skillful. Be more very skillful!1/19/2018 20:21
Those acrobats or anything else should never be hung performing directly over the fountain. One should not expose it to the slightest risk after those huge efforts and expenses to restore it to its glory!
from ' times of malta ' : The city will be celebrating the launch of Valletta 2018, which will see the capital assume the status of European Capital of Culture. Four public spaces – Triton Square, St George’s Square, Castille Square and St John’s Square – will host song and dance to entertain the crowds. Each square will be the venue for a 20-minute kick-off show at 7pm, with encores every hour on the hour until 11pm.
This evening I watched as the crane on the left with the huge colour changing illuminated human form hanging from it and a crew practiced moves, then noticed the bigger crane on the right had something hanging from it too. I was not sure at first just what I was seeing. Read the comments from Dave S and then I realized just what I was seeing. More than a dozen performers doing acrobatics high , very high in the air. Just as I was ready to capture a screen shot the crane swung the group off screen to the right. How wonderfully exciting just watching the practice. I EnJoy EnJoy this 'live cam'.
Every evening I come here, the fountain is even more beautiful. Nice job they are doing. Thx to all the uploaders. I can't wait for the event to take place...
that triton fountain square should have more permanent light , and nice plaque for VNCENT APAP
Superb scenes....such a shame no sound
