Audio Description

17 March, Sunday, 5h30 pm


A major figure in Portuguese Theatre steps onto the stage, opens his heart and tells untold stories from his long and inspiring career. Stories of love, anecdotes and even stories to move us. And because we don’t often have Ruy de Carvalho by our side, the audience is invited to ask the actor questions, making this experience more than just a show – it’s an intimist conversation between friends.


14 to 17 March
Retratos Contados de Ruy de Carvalho
Sala Bernardo Sassetti, Thursday to Saturday, from 6 pm to 10:30 pm; Sunday, from 3:30 pm to 8 pm
Free admission, subject to room capacity

This exhibition brings together photos that are part of the Archives of Teatro Nacional D. Maria II, where Ruy de Carvalho was a resident actor. A glimpse of what he did throughout his life.
