TMP will present every performance scheduled to take place between March and July 2020 and postponed during the new season

We all wished reality to be rather different these days. To have our doors open as they’ve always been; to have artists taking over the stage they deserve; to be able to keep on watching on stage the most recent creations from the artists we follow and from others we’d like to get to know.
Teatro Municipal do Porto keeps on working indoors and online, maintaining a continued relation to its audience through its website and social networks, and teaming with artists and companies to build a future we all expect to come soon.

Following the recent worldwide coronavirus outbreak, and as a preventive measure to contain its spread, Teatro Municipal do Porto postponed all performances scheduled until the end of the current season (July 2020) in accordance with what national and local competent authorities have determined.

To that end, honouring every commitment made within the mission outlined by Teatro Municipal do Porto, our concern is and always will be the work carried out by the artists, securing previously agreed commitments in this difficult moment in their lives, and ensuring their artistic work may be presented in a not-too-distant future in the best possible conditions. TMP thus seeks to provide the necessary tools to allow the creative process to continue in a direct and complicit dialogue with artists, companies, partners and audience. We took great pride in our March to July programme, which has now been rescheduled, and we did everything in our power to present it to our audience as soon as possible.

To this end, and according to what was previously established, we announce the new dates for the performances scheduled to take place during this period and postponed:
