Synopsis

The news of the arrival of the French and the fall of the Order came. The French rule announced its new orders, which were imposed on the island. The Maltese began to show their anger and designed the first revolution, but the French rule is determined to suppress the Maltese agitation. The rebels devised a plan to enter the City and a link was established between the people who were inside and the people who were outside. Uncovering the plot leads to the killing of many rebels. An important page in the History of Malta is translated into an interpretation of the birth of a national consciousness.


Rewwixta (1990 – Revolt) is a poetic drama in three acts; that makes use of dramatic features and poetic elements. It was penned by Oliver Friggieri and set to music as a cantata by Joseph Vella.
