O Velho Teatro de S.João (1798-1908) Teatro e música no Porto do longo século XIX

Synopsis: This book finally lays the foundations for a history of the Teatro de S. João, the old and the new. If, in the etymological sense, the word theater means a place to see, then this history will necessarily be a viewpoint, or observation post. From it we will be able to see not only two historic buildings, but also a theater and its city over more than two centuries, during which time everything has changed? Political regimes, machines, artistic manifestations, social relations, borders? Except for that amazing thing that is Man.
