Main Programme

Venue: Monastery of Alcobaça - Granary

From Haydn to Piazzolla

We regret to inform that the recent travel restrictions imposed by Germany to passengers coming from Portugal make impossible the performance of the South Korean quartet, scheduled for 18h00 on the 4th of July in the Monastery of Alcobaça - Granary.

All the spectators who bought tickets for this show will get their money back. If you bought tickets at the Alcobaça Music Academy, you must go to the same place until the 4th of July, accompanied by the ticket. Spectators who purchased tickets through the online ticket office Meo Blueticket will receive the bank transfer of the ticket price.

The Cistermúsica organization is making efforts to reschedule the concert in due time.

We thank you for your understanding.
