See Cats In Lisbon With

Lisbon 30 September, 2006 The world’s most famous musical, Cats, will be back in Lisbon at the Recreios Coliseum. The Portuguese population has anxiously awaited this return, for two years, as the 6 week performance flew by and many missed the opportunity to catch the show. After being present in over 20 countries, performing live in more than 250 cities, and attracting 115 thousand spectators two years ago in Lisbon, Porto received this Box Office hit for the very first time. Since Cats’s debut in London, 1981, the show has practically toured the world, having been translated in 10 different languages, winning 7 Tony Awards and one Grammy, amongst others. Reasons of success are explained by the excellent cast, where each interpretation has a personal touch, the unforgettable music that accompanies the story, Memory for example, and the appealing theme. Based on the Old Possums Book of Practical Cats by TS Eliot, the musical tells the story of Grizabella the cat who finely returns to her family after abandoning them to discover other worlds. The story is centered within a group of cats that get together on a very special night to discuss which one of them may get a new life in the mystical land of Heavyside Layer.

From the memory of the past, besides amassing a vast number of items from the estate of the old Aviz, its atmosphere, class and tradition of good hospitality were also recovered.

In the cosy and sophisticated rooms and suites, as in all the hotel spaces, contemporary touches were combined with details from the thirties and fifties. The wood floors, the walnut furniture, the woollen rugs and the varied linen and silk fabrics are all of special note and are accompanied by frescoes on the walls.
