Theatralia Jazz Festival 2018

From the Coral Riviera of Alghero to the West End, Filomena Campus’ Theatralia Jazz Festival returns to the PizzaExpress Jazz Club with 'Sardinian Extravaganza' in collaboration with the town of Alghero and Jazz Alguer.

Theatralia Jazz Festival 2018

"Years ago I left my island, Sardinia, for another island. The UK welcomed me and helped me to make many dreams come true. At a moment in which walls are being raised, we seek to build a bridge between our two countries. One that is made of notes, sand, coral, myrtle wine and poetry.

Musical encounters started in 2013 with the first edition of the festival, previously called My Jazz Islands. Encouraged by the vision of PizzaExpress' manager Ross Dines we now welcome the festival's fourth edition, this year in collaboration with the beautiful town of Alghero, Jazz Alguer and Fondazione Alghero, Sardinia."

London meets Alghero - Alghero incontra Londra

In 2018 Theatralia Jazz Festival is dedicated to the encounter between London and Alghero, the gorgeous Catalan town in Sardinia, an island in the island. A unique crossroads of cultures that, in addition to the beautiful beaches and crystal clear sea, preserves an ancient history, protected by the imposing walls that embrace the city.

This project is also a bridge between the Theatralia Jazz Festival in London and Jazz Alguer, a monthly jazz festival directed by jazz trumpeter Paolo Fresu, that offers the opportunity to enjoy the music of international jazz stars in amazing locations in Alghero throughout the year.
