Presentation of the book Teatro Nacional D. Maria II – Sete Olhares sobre o Teatro da Nação

November 12, 2014

The book entitled Teatro Nacional D. Maria II - Sete Olhares sobre o Teatro da Nação, (D. Maria II National Theatre - Seven Perspectives of the National Theatre), edited by INCM in partnership with the D. Maria II National Theatre (TNDM II), was presented yesterday in the atrium of TNDM II.

The work was presented by its coordinator, Maria João Brilhante, accompanied by Carlos Vargas, Chairman of the Board of Directors of TNDM II, and Rui Carp, Chairman of the INCM Board of Directors.

The book presents the points of view of specialists Luís Soares Carneiro, Ana Isabel Vasconcelos, Francesca Rayner, Guilherme Filipe, Isabel Vidal, Cristina Faria and Maria Helena Serôdio, who were invited to write about the D. Maria II Theatre, from architectural legal, dramatical, sociological, artistic, historical and cultural perspectives.

Using a wide range of iconography, this publication is a journey through visual memory that helps to recover figures, spectacles and documents from the theatre's mists of time; it is a guide to understanding the symbolic place occupied by TNDM II in the history of theatre in Portugal.
