Capdeville Ensemble


Venue: Cine-Theater of Alcobaça – João d'Oliva Monteiro

Nocturne for Constança [Premiere]

Instrumental Ensemble


Constance is a sea...

Of sounds, words, images, movements...

Of places... of moonlight.

Of openness, of avant-garde, of creation and re-creation.

Everything, for everyone.

It's a sea that mirrors itself in the distance... that mirrors itself in us and for us...

It's not a concert, it's not a play... It's a single show, where the works intertwine and succeed each other without interruption.

Music, theatre, poetry and audiovisuals evoke the presence of everyone (composers, instrumentalists, conductor, audience) and of Sophia, Florbela, Caeiro and Camões... of Constança... and the sounds around her.

Constança is mirrored in the silvery sea of the moonlit night and is reflected in us... even today... and watches with us as the world bewilders us!
