O Real Teatro de S茫o Jo茫o

Description

The Teatro S茫o Jo茫o鈥檚 over two centuries long history begins with the old Real Teatro, of which the new Teatro S茫o Jo茫o is the successor and heir. Often described as the 鈥渃ity鈥檚 first theatre鈥, it was the pride and joy of Porto high society until a fire destroyed it in the night between 11 and 12 April 1908. The round table discussion that evokes it was set in motion by the book O Velho Teatro de S. Jo茫o (1798-1908): Teatro e M煤sica no Porto do Longo S茅culo XIX, published by the Centro de Estudos de Sociologia e Est茅tica Musical 鈥 NOVA FCSH, with the support of the Teatro Nacional S茫o Jo茫o. The book鈥檚 organisers, Lu铆sa Cymbron and Ana Isabel Vasconcelos, join a debate with architect Lu铆s Soares Carneiro and professors Jos茅 Cam玫es (School of Arts, Universidade de Lisboa) and Pedro Couto Soares (Escola Superior de M煤sica de Lisboa). This set of transdisciplinary looks at aspects of the life of the Real Teatro, as well as of the arts that enlivened it, from opera to dance, from concerts to plays, is aimed at rekindling the flame of the legacy of a theatre that not only 鈥渃ivilised the city鈥 but also played an instrumental role in its urban planning.
