Fado – The Saddest Music in the World: In Concert

Hosted by Intrepid Theatre Company

Location

Metro Studio Theatre, 300 City Centre Drive, Mississauga, ON, L5B 3C1, Canada

Intrepid Theatre is thrilled to announce new dates for this concert presentation of the 2018 Fringe smash-hit and winner of the inaugural JAYMAC Outstanding Production Award, Puente Theatre’s Fado, The Saddest Music in the World.

This in concert performance is not the full production of the show, just the musical excerpts and some narration. This presentation runs 70 minutes, including a short pause (no intermission) and comprises two parts: the music from the show, followed by a Fado concert featuring Sara Marreiros. 

Acclaimed Portuguese-Canadian playwright Elaine Ávila’s new play, FADO, is a tale of love and ghosts set in the back alleys and brothels of old Lisbon. Part concert, part theatre, the story of a young woman confronting her country’s Fascist past and her own identity is interwoven with the heartbreaking national music of Portugal known as Fado, which means “fate.”

The hit of the Victoria Fringe in 2018, Fado won the Award for Favourite Musical, with BC’s own beloved Sara Marreiros playing the ghost of Amália Rodrigues, the queen of Fado, and played a sold-out run at Vancouver’s Firehall Arts Centre.
