An empty room, three chairs, an wardrobe full of traces...

Ghosts waken up their past living characters, their tragedies, their love and misfortune. Death is the guiding line to this opera delirium, where tragedy and comedy walk hand in hand, evocating great opera repertoire.

About us

The Opera production company, based in Lisbon, directed by the soprano Catarina Molder and the producer Nuno Barroso , aims at bringing the passion of opera to everyone in many different formats including the audi-visual. To fulfill the crucial mission of reaching new audiences, Opera do Castelo has been launching innovative opera projects based on artistic and aesthetic concepts that combine tradition and contemporaneity, exploring the inter - disciplinarity power of this art form with daring creativity into the 21st century. It has presented opera in unexpected venues from discos, to public monuments and emblematic districts in the historic centre of Lisbon, as well as creating Opera Urban Festivals and  the acclaimed TV series Super Diva opera for everyone, already in its 3rd Portuguese Season and first EN, in worldwide distribution by Unitel.

Opera is 400 years old and over the last 100 years the audience has been watching, almost exclusively, the same operas from the past. It’s urgent to invest in present opera projects, with stories from now and up close this amazingly rich  art form from today’s audience.
