The Castle of São Jorge – the city's privileged stage – served as the setting for a very special concert with the Orbis Orchestra, which performed two works by the composer Pedro Teixeira da Silva, in world premiere: From the source to the mouth (inspired by the sound of water movement) and The Count of Monte Cristo (from the novel by Alexandre Dumas). With narration by Miguel Guilherme, this concert was also illustrated by images provided by the Hydrographic Institute (Portuguese Navy), and by the projection of watercolors created exclusively for this show by the plastic artist João Murillo.
