Puente Theatre & The Firehall Arts Centre in Vancouver present
“Fado, The Saddest Music in the World”

Acclaimed Portuguese-Canadian playwright Elaine Ávila’s new play, FADO, is a tale of love and ghosts set in the back alleys and brothels of old Lisbon. Part concert, part theatre, the story of a young woman confronting her country’s Fascist past and her own identity is interwoven with the heartbreaking national music of Portugal known as Fado, which means “fate.”

The hit of the Victoria Fringe in 2018, “Fado” won the Award for Favourite Musical, with Brazilian guitarist Pedro M. Siquiera playing a transgender Fadista and BC’s own beloved Sara Marreiros playing the ghost of Amália Rodrigues, the queen of Fado.
