    Frank Martin Le Vin herbé, para coro, dois violinos, viola, dois violoncelos, contrabaixo e piano



    It is almost impossible to talk about Tristan and Isolde without remembering Wagner's opera. But Frank Martin proved that this medieval Celtic legend can have a very different interpretation. The opulence of Wagner’s opera contrasts with Martin’s piece, written for only 8 instruments and 12 voices, between 1938 and 1941. The Swiss composer classified Le vin herbé (The Magic Potion) as a “secular oratorio”, inspired by the way Bach treated his oratorios. The dramaturgy places the audience at the centre of the work's theatricality, alongside the narrative of the two bewitched lovers, and also on another plane, of those who tell the story from the stage. Le vin herbé is frequently performed in theatres and concert halls around the world and will be presented for the first time at Casa da Música.


    According to the Resolution of the Council of Ministers No. 114-A/2021, the presentation of one of the following documents will be required to access cultural events, from September 17, 2021:
    • EU COVID Digital Certificate, valid;
    • Laboratory test (PCR) performed within 72 hours prior to its presentation, with a negative result;
    • Rapid antigen test (TRAg), verified by a certified entity and carried out within 48 hours prior to its presentation, with a negative result;
    • Rapid antigen test (TRAg), in the form of a self-test, performed upon entering Casa da Música, under the supervision of a staff member.

    Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Casa da Música implemented the following safety measures:
    • Mandatory use of mask inside the building of Casa da Música;
    • Non-invasive temperature measurement (except concerts on Sala Suggia or Sala 2);
    • Hand hygiene;
    • Compliance with social distancing rules.

    Failure to comply with these measures prevents access to concerts, educational activities and guided tours held at Casa da Música.

    You will find visible signs on the different routes and spaces of Casa da Música, as well as information regarding the rules of access, circulation and permanence (always keeping the social distance of 2 meters), as well as the maximum capacity of the different spaces.
    All customer service points are equipped with acrylic barriers for protection and demarcation on the floor of the mandatory distance. All spaces are equipped with hand sanitizer dispensers that visitors should use before the start of activities, the purchase of tickets and the guided tours, among others.
    We reinforced our hygiene plan, particularly in the disinfection of surfaces and objects (sanitary facilities, counters, handrails, door handles, switches), and in the ventilation of spaces with greater circulation of people.
