Nocturno is a visually and musically stunning show from Portugal that drew the audience at the BIG BANG Festival in Lisbon into the night and left them spellbound. A pianist and two performers are your guides through the world of dreams, lullabies and moonlight – but also the world of nightmares, monsters under the bed and rain that keeps you awake at night. The night is the domain of your imagination. Shadows, darkness, silence, street sounds and movements in the dark: they fascinate and open the door to amazing fantasies and unexpected fears.
Musically, the performance flows out of the nocturne: a melancholy piano piece of the Romantic period. A grand piano is the beating heart of the performance and is used to perform beautiful new compositions. An unforgettable trip.
