Real Fado is back, with intimate concerts at the Patriarchal Reservoir and at the Príncipe Real Embassy, taking place every Friday and Sunday until the end of January at 7 pm.
The experience promises to be immersive, as we talk about performances in surprising locations such as a 19th-century mansion and an underground stone cistern, right in the heart of the Príncipe Real garden. Make a note in your diary and make this pre-dinner concert program, then enjoy one of the wonderful restaurants that the neighbourhood has to offer. These unusual locations contrast with the authenticity of the concerts with performances by artists in an informal register and very close to the public.
It is advisable to purchase tickets in advance for these Real Fado concerts through Ticketline. In addition to the usual tickets, 10 Real Tickets are also available – tickets reserved for the best seats in the room, with a personalized reception.
The Real Fado celebrates this traditional Lisbon song, listed as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. The name pays homage to its motherhouse, “Príncipe Real“, the coolest neighbourhood in Lisbon, which combines splendid views, romantic gardens, aristocratic palaces and a charming urban fabric with the most trendy shops and restaurants in the capital.
Get to know the different sounds that are waiting for you at Real Fado:
Traditional Fado: In this concert, Fado is presented in its most traditional form. This is a time for Fado and conversations between friends. Few people, an intimate concert that, more than a concert, is a moment of sharing emotions.
Fado & Other Sounds: Real Fado also celebrates the influence of Fado around the world. In this way, we are surprised by the inspirations that, over time, Fado artists have been drinking from other musical genres, such as Choro, Samba or Cante Alentejano.
Timeless Fado: Two generations embrace heritage and contemporaneity, thus crossing the past with the future. Three instruments accompany a consecrated voice and a young and promising one. Come and be surprised by the union of these two universes in the present.
