Audio Description

26 and 28 April, Friday, 8 pm and Sunday 5:30 pm


“Quis saber quem sou” was the first phrase of a revolutionary nature at the beginning of democracy in Portugal, heard on April 24, 1974, at 10:55 pm, on the Emissores
Associados. The first verse of the song E Depois do Adeus, full of individual and collective questioning, sung by Paulo de Carvalho, marks the historic moment of the start of the revolution, turning a love song into a symbol of freedom.
Halfway between a concert and a theater play, Quis saber quem sou — um concerto teatral aims to revisit the songs of the revolution, the slogans, the songs that are weapons, but also the personal stories of the generations that made the 25th of April, bringing to the stage young actors/singers, chosen in a national audition, and placing in their voices and bodies of today, and of the future, the memory of the words of freedom.


In this show, strobe lights are used.


Quis saber quem sou – um concerto teatral is part of the Abril Abriu Cycle, an initiative of the Teatro Nacional D. Maria II.

Included in the April Festivities 2024 program
