The Diario reports that Teatro Municipal Baltazar Dias (TMBD) celebrates 135 years in March. To mark this anniversary, a “vast program” has been prepared.

To receive the new artistic season, ‘Baltazar Dias’ underwent maintenance work in August last year, which was carried out by the department of Mobility, Infrastructure and Equipment Division of Buildings and Equipment. This is an annual commitment necessary for the longevity of one of the most emblematic buildings in the city of Funchal.

One of the shows scheduled for this month is the ‘Spectators Collection’, which will be on stage on the 4th and 5th of March, at 9 pm and 6 pm, respectively.

10 people from the general community were selected to share the scene with Raquel André – director – and tell their life story in the first person, based on their stories as spectators, with ‘Baltazar Dias’ in the background.
