Enjoy a live Fado show, the musical expression of Lisbon’s melancholic soul – a mix of nostalgia (saudade), hope, pride and conformism.
Fado in Chiado is a performance featuring two young fadistas (fado singers) accompanied by two guitarists, playing classic and Portuguese guitars. The show includes several performances offering a complete overview of the different fado styles (fado tradicional, fado menor, fado canção and fado popular).
Food is not included. However, there are several excellent restaurants in Chiado and Bairro Alto that you can enjoy after the show.
The show is held at the small venue Theatro Gymnásio in Espaço Chiado. The Fado in Chiado show received in 2013 the Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor, one of the most popular travel sites in the world.
