Photographer's Note

Hi TE friends

REINA from Japan and DIOGO from Portugal were dancing the famous music of Tchaikovsky, the Nutcracker.

They are students of the National Conservatory Dance School. This is an event of Chiado in Fashion 2009

This second show was not a surprise for me, because in the day before I had asked them for new events.

The weather was bad, I needed to use 400 ISO and the quality is not so good. Anyway I like it and it's a nice moment of the show.

The Nutcracker Op. 71, is a fairy tale-ballet in two acts, three scenes, by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, composed in 1891–92. Alexandre Dumas père's adaptation of the story "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King" by E.T.A. Hoffmann was set to music by Tchaikovsky (staged by Marius Petipa and commissioned by the director of the Imperial Theatres Ivan Vsevolozhsky in 1891). In Western countries, The Nutcracker has become perhaps the most popular of all ballets, performed primarily around Christmas time.

Chiado in Fashion 2009

Concerts, dance shows, fashion shows, conferences, exhibits and a vintage car show are just a few of the events to entertain Chiado in May.

Throughout Lisboa’s history, Chiado has always been a centre of attraction for style and fashion. This tradition remains alive in the many cafés, bookshops, theatres and shops of this charming Lisboa neighbourhood.

May 9 to 17, public areas and show halls in Chiado.

The National Conservatory Dance School (EDCN) is a vocational artistic school for dance education with academic studies integrated. Our goal is to prepare our students in the best possible way for the challenges required today of a professional dancer both in the classical and contemporary world.
There are 7 studios equipped for dance practice. For the current year there are 170 students enrolled in the school.
