CLASSICAL CONCERT | Il Natale Augusto | Belém | 10-23€

January 10 @ 11:00 - 12:00

€10 – €23

From the organizers:
“In 1793, a bloody year elsewhere, the new São Carlos Theater was built in Lisbon and António Leal Moreira, one of the most important Portuguese composers of his time, became its first musical director.
That same year, the musician was commissioned to write an allegorical serenade entitled Il Natale Augusto, with a libretto by Gaetano Martinelli, to celebrate the birth of D. Maria Teresa, firstborn of Prince D. João and Princess D. Carlota Joaquina.
Music, therefore, for a festive occasion, with sound as a basis for joy. The work was intended to be sung in the palace of the capitalist Anselmo José da Cruz Sobral. No expense was looked at – the famous Luísa Todi, who had already conquered all of Europe (from Setúbal to Saint Petersburg), came expressly from Madrid to participate in this world premiere.
Leal Moreira’s work is significantly influenced by the languages ​​of Giovanni Paisiello and Domenico Cimarosa, composers whose works took the stage of our Theater in their early years.”

Musical Direction by João Paulo Santos.
Chorus of the São Carlos National Theater.
