Designed by Luxembourg studio Valentiny HPV Architects for the Música em Trancoso Festival 2014, the Mozarteum Brasileiro Theatre is a shell-like concrete structure with two different overlapped audiences, one indoor and one outdoor.
Designed by Luxembourg studio Valentiny HPV Architects, the Mozarteum Brasileiro Theatre has two different overlapped audiences, one indoor and one outdoor, each with 1,100 seats.
In the future, the theatre will house various cultural and socio-educational activities, becoming a permanent center of cultural production.
The Mozarteum Brasileiro Theatre also includes an annex, The Facilities building, with eight rehearsal rooms, spacious bar and meeting rooms. With a design which contrasts curves with triangular openings, totally integrated with the natural environment of Trancoso, the building brings imposing panels, etched in bronze, from the renowned Brazilian artist Maria Bonomi. The engravings refer to both the local nature with its impressive cliffs and the birth of the Brazilian nation.
