Who are you, audiences?

We want to know more about our audiences, the people who frequent our spaces and are an inalienable part of Teatro Nacional São João. Say, here and now, who are you?

Social Tickets/Solidary Premiere

In the new 2020-21 season, and as befits our recently-acquired centenary respectability, we take one further step in our inclusive policy with the creation of a Social Ticket Fund.

The Teatro Nacional São João is a safe place

Over the last months, we have developed a detailed contingency plan that encompasses set preparations, rehearsals and the shows themselves, ensuring the security of the São João audiences, artists and workers, in accordance with the Health authorities’ recommendations.

Suspension of activities and shows until April 6

As part of the national effort to contain the new coronavirus, and in close articulation with the Portuguese Ministry of Culture and the Health Authorities, the Teatro Nacional São João, E.P.E decided to suspend all its activities and shows until April 6th.
