An event every day that begins at 21:30, repeating until August 17, 2019
What happens when recent graduates from an 18-year-old local acting school (called “ACT”) come to the magnificent ruins of a 630-year-old convent to perform a Portuguese interpretation of a 2434-year-old Greek tragedy?
Well, you get Troianas (“Trojan Women”) — a modern take, with some fresh faces, on an ancient and timeless tale (made more relevant by recent global trends).
On a one-of-a-kind stage.
Under the stars.
With English subtitles.
Troianas is directed by António Pires.
It runs nightly through Aug. 17.
