The Man of Dreams [O Homem dos Sonhos]

Ópera Do Castelo debuts in Teatro São Luiz the opera O Homem dos Sonhos, with music and libretto by the composer António Chagas Rosa,  one of the most relevant contemporary Portuguese composers. A long dreamt project inspired in the dramatic and visionary work with the same name from Mário De Sá Carneiro.

Music and libetto by António Chagas Rosa; musical direction by Jan Wierzba staging by Miguel Loureiro.
With MPMP ENSEMBLE, Catarina Molder and Christian Lujàn
