The Lisboa na Rua program, an initiative of EGEAC and the Lisbon City Council, had the participation of 47,559 people, who attended the 80 free-entry open-air shows between August 19 and September 18.
Lisboa na Rua marks Lisbon’s rentrée with concerts, plays, film and video art sessions, magic, installations, performances, dance, and others. The total number of spectators shows a growth of 5% compared to the estimates foreseen for the 2022 edition, this year, without the restrictions imposed by the pandemic.
Solo Fest, Lisboa Mágica, Fuso, Lisboa Soa, and Dançar a Cidade, are some of Lisboa na Rua’s usual projects. But the 2022 edition included novelties, such as the cineconcerto O Fauno das Montanhas, in the garden of the Lisbon Museum – Palácio Pimenta, the play A Passarola, by Trigo Limpo Teatro ACERT, in Largo José Saramago, or the concert by the Lisbon Poetry Orchestra, in the Castle of São Jorge.
Lisboa na Rua also celebrated the 200th anniversary of the Independence of Brazil, on September 7, with a concert by the Minas Gerais Philharmonic Orchestra, in Jardim da Torre de Belém, which was attended by 3,000 people (and more than 3,500 followed him online, through the social networks of EGEAC and CML).
A highlight of the program, Uma Noite no Vale filled the idyllic setting of the Vale do Silêncio, on the night of September 10, with 22 thousand people, who heard the Gulbenkian Orchestra and guest soloists interpret a varied program, by composers such as Puccini, Gershwin, Bernstein or Arturo Marquez.
Always confirm with the concert hall or promoter the conditions of access, confirmation of the date or time, tickets place of sale, price, and availability.
