10th ZêzereArts Festival - 2020

The full programme of public performances of the ZêzereArts Festival 2020 is nearing completion and will include choral works by Beethoven and his Portuguese contemporary Domingos Bomtempo along with a new choral work especially written by the 2020 composer in residence, César Viana. Two weeks of choral, orchestral and chamber music performances will culminate with the presentation of our production of Bellini's take on Romeo and Juliet, I Capuleti ed i Montecchi. The 2020 Festival takes place from July 11th to August 2nd in the Medio Tejo region of central Portugal. Applications are open for choral singers, choirs, recital and opera singers and string players who wish to apply to join us to study, sing and play at the festival.
