LIVE MUSIC | Carnival Concert: Lisbon Metropolitan Orchestra | Belém | 21€ to 112€

February 11 @ 11:00

1st Show: 11h

2nd Show: 17h

The musicians of the Lisbon Metropolitan Orchestra have a score to settle with the masterpieces of classical music. After all, why are some masterpieces better than others? Isn’t it time to bring this matter to a head? Carnival is a pretext like no other. So let’s talk about breves and eighth notes, preludes and serenades, fife and double bass. Music, maestro!

We count on your cooperation in promoting these two concerts on Carnival Sunday, by the Lisbon Metropolitan Orchestra and Music Director Jan Wierzba.
