|Aperitivo Performance Group||
Aperitivo, like all other groups in the São Brás area, was asked to contribute something in celebration of the centenary of São Brás de Alportel as a Concelho.
One of our new members, well-known journalist Carolyn Kain, immediately set to and wrote an epic poem around the story of Miguel Dias, the muleteer-made-good who built the grand mansion that is now the Museu do Trajo. It is an interesting, not to say scurrilous, story with plenty of gossip and will make a lively presentation. Plans are to perform it in the style of a vintage, black and white movie, with a background of old photos to Miguel and his various brides, plus a neo-Greek chorus of disgruntled peasants.
Gertrud Dürnholz will direct.
