Opera for All in Lisbon

On the 2nd of June 2016, the Embassy of Denmark in Lisbon held an open opera event gathering the citizens of Lisbon.

In the beautiful park, Jardim do Torel, overlooking Lisbon’s historical centre, the local city council and the Danish Embassy in Lisbon invited both the Danish community as well as Portuguese friends and acquaintances to join an enjoyable public opera event. 

The opera singers Ulla Kudsk Jensen and Jesper Buhl and the pianist Sofia Wilkman performed songs ranging from well-known operas to Portuguese fado. As we know it from Denmark, but which is new in Lisbon, the opera event was held in open air in a popular public park. The Embassy was pleased to see both Portuguese and Danes of all age groups among the audience. For the Danes it was an occasion also to celebrate the Constitutional Day.
