About the program

"This recital is a moment of celebration and the possibility of once again sharing with all audiences our great passion.

We went through difficult and strange times and now we are back on stage, that mythical space where great transformations take place.

For this very special moment, in a Palace full of memory, we have chosen some of the most beautiful and emblematic arias from Opera, Operetta, together with Neapolitan Songs and other Musical themes.

From the voice of Soprano Nádia Fidalgo, which will be joined by the voice of the piano, many of the tragic, passionate, happy, angry, desperate, and hopeful characters who have always accompanied our human nature will emerge.

In Queluz, on an autumn night, a Recital of Gathering.

We shall be there, waiting for you!"


Melissa Fontoura
