Events Description

Acclaimed Portuguese-Canadian playwright Elaine Ávila’s new play, FADO, is a tale of love and ghosts set in the back alleys and brothels of old Lisbon. Part concert, part theatre, the story of a young woman confronting her country’s Fascist past and her own identity is interwoven with the heartbreaking national music of Portugal known as Fado, which means “fate.”

The hit of the Victoria Fringe in 2018, Fado won the Award for Favourite Musical, with BC’s own beloved Sara Marreiros playing the ghost of Amália Rodrigues, the queen of Fado.

WRITTEN BY ELAINE ÁVILA, DIRECTED BY MERCEDES BÁTIZ-BENÉT, FEATURING LIVE MUSIC BY FADO SINGER SARA MARREIROS

“…resonates and pulls at heartstrings in inexpressible ways. Fado is another triumph for Mercedes Bátiz-Benét and Puente Theatre.” – Janice Lacouvée

“Fado is a triumph. Its raw emotion echoes long after the final notes are sung.” – Showbill Canada
