TNSJ has announced the programming for the 2021/2022 season, where the work of Shakespeare will mark the reunion with the spectators, in October.
The São João National Theater (TNSJ) announced the programming for the period between September and March of the 2021/2022 season. Under the motto “The Centenary ends here”, São João proposes to recover part of the program that the pandemic has postponed, through a set of initiatives that are now finding their time.
The new season brings nine absolute premieres, including two own productions, four international shows, one of them national premieres, and 14 co-productions. The new schedule brings with it the announcement of the reopening of the doors of the TNSJ headquarters building, scheduled for October. The reopening of the centenary building is part of a three-day program punctuated by an international colloquium, an exhibition, the premiere of a new production and the launch of three volumes of the “Cadernos do Centenário” collection.
The opening of the headquarters building doors will be marked with the premiere of “Lear”, in its own production, on October 22nd. Nuno Cardoso, artistic director of TNSJ, takes to the scene one of Shakespeare’s most acclaimed works, written in the early 17th century. First presented in 1606, before the court of King James I of England, the play has since been revisited by the most renowned international theaters, now joining the range of São João’s own productions.
