Ensemble Mensurable, June 26

Teatro-ThaliaNext Thursday (June 26), 17:30, I will be singing with Ensemble Mensurable at the Theatre Thalia, Lisbon. We will be performing Portuguese polyphony that turns around the Missa Sancta Maria by Duarte Lobo. The programme will also feature music by Estêvão Lopes Morago and secular works by Josquin Desprez, Francisco Guerrero and Mateo Flecha “El Viejo”. This concert will be our first grand collaboration with the Movimento Patrimonial pela Música Portuguesa.

The concert will take place at the theatre built by Fortunato Lodi, under the direction of Conde de Farrobo in the nineteenth century. It opened in 1843 but a fire in 1862 and the bankruptcy of Conde de Farrobo left it in ruins until recently. The Teatro das Laranjeiras (as it was commonly called at the time) gave performances of operas like Meyerbeer’s Robert, Le Diable, Mozart’s Don Giovanni, or Le Duc d’Olonne by Aubert.
