O Real Teatro de S√£o Jo√£o

Description

The Teatro S√£o Jo√£o‚Äôs over two centuries long history begins with the old Real Teatro, of which the new Teatro S√£o Jo√£o is the successor and heir. Often described as the ‚Äúcity‚Äôs first theatre‚ÄĚ, 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√£o (1798-1908): Teatro e M√ļsica no Porto do Longo S√©culo XIX, published by the Centro de Estudos de Sociologia e Est√©tica Musical ‚Äď NOVA FCSH, with the support of the Teatro Nacional S√£o Jo√£o. The book‚Äôs organisers, Lu√≠sa Cymbron and Ana Isabel Vasconcelos, join a debate with architect Lu√≠s Soares Carneiro and professors Jos√© Cam√Ķes (School of Arts, Universidade de Lisboa) and Pedro Couto Soares (Escola Superior de M√ļsica 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 ‚Äúcivilised the city‚ÄĚ but also played an instrumental role in its urban planning.
