We are already missing the holidays, beach and sun from sweet month of August… but don’t feel too sad! Lisboa na Rua 2017 is back to cheer up the city!
August is gone! ”ohhhh” and so remains a crowd from our blog readers, missing summer holidays. Don’t be sad! September is the month of renewal and news and the city is back with great events from another Lisboa na Rua 2017 edition. Through the city you will come across with cinema, dancing workshops and so much more. Take a look at our tips and celebrate September with Fora da Rota Tours!
You have to write down in you agenda: 9th September at 9:30 p.m. is Carmina Burana. The magnificent opera by Carl Orff will be performed by Gulbenkian choir and orchestra and Children choir of the Gregoriano Institute of Lisbon. It will be magical in one of the biggest green areas in the city – the urban park of Vale do Silêncio in Olivais.
Dançar a Cidade
Let’s put shyness aside and learn some dancing steps! The Swing Station, Espaço Baião and Tradballas will put to dance the rhythms they know best: swing, forró and folk with free classes and then a ball dance. It will be fun at the end of the afternoon in Eduardo VII park. For those who prefer African rhythms you can go to Príncipe Real. Kizomba, Funaná Kola Sanjon and African tribal dances promise to warm up the afternoons. All events have Free Entrance!
