Fernando Leal was born in the Azores, on the island of S. Miguel, at the age of nine he left for the Algarve without knowing it was a one-way trip. Later he entered the music conservatory in Olhão, where he took singing lessons to perfect his vocal technique. At the age of 17 he started playing in bars gaining new experiences. In 2018 he recorded his first album, “Na Primeira Pessoa”, an autobiographical disc, with twelve themes in Portuguese of his authorship, ranging from pop-rock to light music, drinking influences in big names such as Jorge Palma and Rui Veloso.
Fado singer Cuca Roseta’s new album is a tribute to Amália Rodrigues (1920-1998) and who recognizes influence on her journey. The desire to sing Amália came from behind, but it ended up materializing for this year if we celebrate the centenary of the birth of Amália Rodrigues. In Loulé, Cuca brings the album “Cuca Canta Amália”, a musical sharing between Cuca Roseta and the musicians who accompany her. The themes are the same as Cuca has always sung in Amália’s repertoire and which are still part of the lineup of her shows. Among them, two fados with lyrics by Amália Rodrigues, “A Lágrima”, music by Carlos Gonçalves, and “Estranha Forma de Vida”, interpreted in the melody of Fado Bailado, by Alfredo Marceneiro. The fado singer decided not to choose only traditional fados and that is why the album includes two marches, the Centenário, a creation by Maria Clara, in 1940, which Amália recorded, and a “Marcha da Mouraria”. The album also includes “Ai, Mouraria”, “Fado Malhoa”, “Fadista Louco”, “Vagamundo”, “Com Que Voz” and “Barco Negro”. Cuca, who has already published three albums, recently released the book “Cem poemas de Cuca Roseta”.

Enoch Arden – Melodrama for Richard Strauss’ narrator and piano on Tennyson’s poem Basically the definition of melodrama refers to a work, or part of it, in which the text is recited about music. Although some operas have moments of melodrama – Fidelio or The woman without a shadow, for example – several composers dedicated whole works to this musical practice. In 1896/97, Strauss composed the melodrama Enoch Arden, for voice and piano, on Tennyson’s text. The work is located between the symphonic poems Thus spoke Zarathustra of 1896, and D. Quixote of 1897 and, like these, it can already be considered a work of maturity for a composer with 33 years old who still had a long and creative career with your front. It was with Enoch Arden that Strauss achieved a resounding success at the time, even greater than that achieved with symphonic poems, having made numerous tours with his dedicator, Ernst von Possart, actor and theater director. Enoch Arden is one of the longest existing melodramas and one of the best built. The theme reminds us of Ulysses and Robinson Crusoe, but the melancholy of the sailor who loses and finds his family again formed, judging him […]
Serena Serenade 1. A balcony 2. A twisted neck 3. Ears with heart In other words: a balcony is needed, because a serenade on the ground floor loses a lot of feedback. Then, let the neck of the singer lend itself to twisting a lot, so that the voice reaches the balcony cool as a lettuce. And finally, that whoever is up there has a heart beyond the ears. This is for a normal serenade! But for a Serene Serenade of the Opera IT, we cannot think so linearly. We started by arranging a nomadic balcony that is now in Sicily, now in Venice, now in Naples. Then there are three twisted necks, because with three necks the twisting allows for much tastier harmonies. And finally … what is behind the curtain that lights up with the sailors singing? As we well know, we do not always know what we are going to. But perhaps this is the fascination with almost everything: we go fishing – what will we fish today? Let’s serenate – will the window light come on? Hmmm… clouds – Do I take an umbrella or not? The challenge of the uncertain and the mystery of discovery […]

After “A Freguesia”, with dramaturgy and staging by Ricardo Neves-Neves (in 2017), a show that ended the program commemorating the 100th anniversary of the parish of Quarteira, Cineteatro directed a new invitation to Teatro Do Eléctrico for the creation of a a show based on a theme from the municipality of Loulé: the Mother Sovereign. “Soberana” is a show with text by Ana Lázaro, staged by Ricardo Neves-Neves and musical direction by Rita Nunes, about the history and worship of the Mother Soberana de Loulé, which is celebrated annually on Easter Day (Festa Pequena) and two weeks later (Festa Grande). “As soon as I started researching the Sovereign Mother, I realized that more than a religious, cultural and historical manifestation, this is, like the genetic and intrinsic bond that links the Mother with her son, part of a collective body, of identity of a people. The affiliation of the Louletanos to their Mother is lost in time and space, is rooted in the blood, in the cycles of the seasons, in the daily struggle, in the joy and pain that they live, under an odd intimate connection of protection and complicity. In a relationship of affection deeply divine, and at […]
