Four emblematic spots in the historical neighbourhoods of Alfama and Mouraria, become living settings, where Opera do Castelo will present operatic moments inspired by the life of the neighbourhood and of their inhabitants, with their worries, believes, prejudices, desires and dreams. The street becomes confident, the neighbors actors and the neighbourhood, simultaneously stage and audience of our stories.

Suffered tragic stories, enjoyed great fun or unaccepted impossible love. Luck, disgrace, disputes and secrets, in the corners, alleys and little stairs of the world which is the neighbourhood.
