Teatro Nacional Dona Maria II

Dating back to the mid-19th century, the columns of Portugal’s national theatre in Lisbon, Teatro Nacional Dona Maria II, dominate Rossio square. The statue on top of the façade is Gil Vicente, the father of Portuguese theatre.

Initially intended to help civilise the Portuguese nation, it has done little in recent years to support contemporary projects. The Teatro Nacional Dona Maria II presents a repertoire of Portuguese and foreign plays, although most performances are in Portuguese. The season normally runs from autumn to spring.
