Manuela Rey Is In Da House

Description

It all began in Northern Galicia, in a remote corner of Mondo帽edo, on 1 October 1842. That was the birthplace of Manuela Rey, who, under not yet fully known circumstances, migrated at a very young age to Portugal, where she became one of the most famous actresses of her time. She made her debut at the age of 15, on the stage of Lisbon鈥檚 Teatro Nacional D. Maria II, the first act in a phenomenal career that was cut short by her untimely death in 1866 (she was only 23 years old). In his book Vinte Anos de Vida Liter谩ria, Alberto Pimentel remembers the actress, whom he saw perform on the Teatro S茫o Jo茫o stage: 鈥淎 white-winged, blond-haired cherub.鈥 Now, Teatro do Noroeste 鈥 Centro Dram谩tico de Viana revives the fabulous and vaguely enigmatic story of this actress and writer, by producing Manuela Rey Is In Da House, a play directed and dramaturgically supervised by Fran N煤帽ez (the director of Centro Dram谩tico Galego) that acts as a sort of triumphant stage comeback for Manuela Rey.
