CONCERT AND VIDEO MAPPING | Carnation Revolution Celebration | Terreiro do Paço | FREE

April 24, 2023 @ 22:00 - 23:30

On the night before April 25, which marks Portugal’s anniversary of the 1974 Carnation Revolution, Terreiro do Paço will host several major Portuguese musicians paying tribute and celebrating the spirit of that day, including with songs by the voice of the revolution, Zeca Afonso. The show also includes a videomapping project — projections onto the buildings enclosing the square — accompanied by live music. All for free. It’s a big day for Portugal, and it’s a great time for foreigners to feel a part of it.

From the organizers:

“On the night of 24 April in Terreiro do Paço, we’ll be awaiting that first clear, clean day. Vitorino will bring us Abril em Flor, a show commissioned and produced by Lisbon Municipal Council and EGEAC. There will be songs of hope and songs from the period of resistance to the dictatorship. The stage will be shared by various artists: performing live will be Mafalda Veiga, Márcia, Luís Trigacheiro, Zeca Medeiros and Cantadeiras e Cantadores do Redondo, while Aldina Duarte, Capicua, Carlão and Tim will join us by video to inspire us with the poetry of Manuel Alegre, Sophia de Mello Breyner, Jonas Negalha and Ruy Belo. António Jorge Gonçalves will use a few photographs to create a world of live drawing projected onto the stage during the show, which will be accompanied by musicians Sérgio Costa, Rui Alves, Carlos Salomé, Paulo Jorge and Guilherme Duque, conducted by Tomás Pimentel.

Artistic directors: António Miguel Guimarães and Vitorino; Production: Ana Mafalda Fevereiro/AMG MUSIC; Lighting: Carlos Carvalho/FX RoadLights (Project and design), Nuno Gonçalves (Operations); Sound: Nuno Rebocho/FOH, Carlos Cruz (Sound mixer); Stage Manager: Cândido Esteves
