The Dawn I Waited For arrives in Porto

Coliseu Porto Ageas, on the 30th and 31st of May

The musical that brings together Bárbara Tinoco and Carolina Deslandes on stage, heads to the Coliseu Porto Ageas on the 30th and 31st of May, for two unique performances.

Lisbon, 1971

Olívia (Deslandes/Tinoco)* and Francisco (Diogo Branco) meet and fall in love with an amateur theatre group that is producing a musical version of Romeo and Juliet. Olívia has strong political ideals that are reflected in her active opposition to the dictatorship. Francisco is an introverted boy, he dreams of being a comedy actor – he believes that laughter is the most effective weapon of subversion – and he goes to rehearsals in secret, because his father does not approve of his artistic aspirations. Wanted by PIDE, for selling books banned by censorship, Olívia takes refuge in Paris to escape prison, oblivious to the fact that Francisco was deployed to war. In France, Olivia sings in a bar. In Africa, Francisco tries to survive. They meet years later, on the day of the April 25th revolution.

Can we meet the right person at the wrong time?

Does love really move mountains, or is burning passion just left in ashes?

* Carolina Deslandes and Bárbara Tinoco play Olivia, one of the protagonists of this romantic plot, alternating the role with that of Clara, her sister. In this way, the actress who plays Olivia will change from day to day, once being Carolina Deslandes and the other Bárbara Tinoco. Both actresses will be on stage in the show’s two performances, both in the role of Olivia and Clara.

On May 30th “Olívia” stars Carolina Deslandes and on May 31st by Bárbara Tinoco.
