An evening at tomar castle in the realm of the templarS
We will spend an evening in Tomar with a candlelight dinner at its great Templar castle, whose ambience evokes the centuries when the Templars – and their successors in Portugal, the Knights of Christ – were at their most active.
With Tânia Cardoso, Rodrigo Crespo and Catarina Anacleto
Fado is the exquisite music of longing and passion that emerged from the ocean journeys of Portuguese sailors and explorers, and their feelings for those they loved but had left behind in the old country. It is said that an old romance between Music and Poetry gave birth to this timeless Portuguese art. This evening includes performances of songs based on the work of Portuguese poets David Mourão Ferreira, Mário de Sá Carneiro and Fernando Pessoa, and the Arab poets of Al-Andalus who inhabited medieval Portugal. Singer Tânia Cardoso, guitarist and composer Rodrigo Crespo, and cellist Catarina Anacleto, turn into music the words of the poets who sang of the Portuguese Soul.
