The Yellow Star Company presents in Lagoa and at the Carlos do Carmo Auditorium the play “O Homem da Amália”, performed by Virgílio Castelo. The show takes the stage on December 10th, at 5:00 pm.
Synopsis: The story of a man who existed, and ceased to exist, because he fell in love with a star that could not be reached. The story of a man who dedicated his life and death to following our one and only diva, wherever she might be. Through the fados she sang, the verses she wrote, and the passions she felt, we will accompany Amália for an hour and a quarter, seeing her through the eyes of the man who lived for her and died for her.
In a show full of theater moves, we are going to get to know the Amália that only this man has known. In the fado houses, in the theaters, in the cinema, in the success outside, in the envy inside. Let’s remember some things we already knew about her life, and find out about others she never talked about. And when the curtain closes, our biggest star will be even more present in our memories – where it never ceased to shine – sublimated, now, by the ravings of the broken heart of this unknown Amália Man.
