Photographer's Note

The Coliseu do Porto is a theatre in Porto, Portugal. Coliseu do Porto is arguably one of the most relevant landmarks of Porto and a prestigious venue for music and cultural activities. Together with Batalha Cinema (Porto), the Coliseu is a very good example of Portuguese art deco in the city of Porto. It was built after the historical Sal緌 Jardim Passos Manuel which was built in the early years of the XX century. The earliest sketches of the building are from the year 1911. However the building was officially declared built only in 1941.

The, at the time, modern-looking building counted with the collaboration of several Portuguese and a Dutch architect. In 1939, however, Cassiano Branco takes the responsibility for the coordination of the whole project.
The main auditorium of Coliseu do Porto has a capacity for 3,500 people standing and 2.955 seated when we count the 1st and 2nd stalls, the dress circle, the boxes, upper circle and the reserved and general gallery. There is also a smaller room, called sal緌 膺ico, which has capacity for 300 people and, as such, is more suitable for smaller performances, conferences and symposia.

Com projecto dos arquitectos Cassiano Branco e Jlio Brito pertencendo Companhia de Seguros Garantia, o coliseu foi inaugurado a 19 de Dezembro de 1941, com um concerto da Sinf鏮ica Nacional, dirigida pelo maestro Pedro de Freitas Branco.

No ano de 1995 a Companhia de Seguros AXA, ent緌 propriet嫫ia do im镽el, inicia negocia踥es com a Igreja Universal do Reino de Deus, propondo-se esta ltima a comprar e a UAP a vender. Por幦, v嫫ias personalidades ligadas cultura, 跴 artes e autarquia local, promovem uma manifesta誽o de repdio eventual transac誽o. Uma vez vetada pela autarquia, a transac誽o n緌 se concretiza. Em Novembro de 1995, em escritura notarial outorgada entre a C滵ara, a 臆ea Metropolitana do Porto, a Secretaria de Estado da Cultura e a UAP, constitui-se uma associa誽o sem fins lucrativos com a finalidade de adquirir o Coliseu e geri-lo como espa蔞 de interesse cultural.

A sala principal do Coliseu do Porto tem 3.000 lugares sentados, entre plateia, tribunas, camarotes, frisas, galeria reservada e geral, e permite que nela sejam realizados todo o tipo de espect塶ulos: msica, bailado, teatro, 鏕era, circo, cinema, etc.
O Coliseu do Porto disp髊 ainda de um sal緌 膺ico com capacidade para cerca de 300 pessoas, vocacionado para pequenos bailes ou espect塶ulos, confer瘽cias, congressos ou assembleias enquadradas na capacidade da sala.
