In recent years, Gulbenkian Music has opened the doors to each new season with a free concert in the inspirational Vale do Silêncio. A celebration of profound complicity between the Gulbenkian Orchestra and the city of Lisbon and an outreach to new audiences in an informal context, based on the interpretation of hugely popular favourites. This time, the Gulbenkian Orchestra and Choir will join forces to perform a programme mainly focused on the orchestral and choral repertoire of opera and musicals.
