The programming of the 37th Festival of Almada will be almost exclusively Portuguese given the circumstances experienced in the last months, with only three international productions being maintained.
The Festival will take place this year from the 3rd to the 26th of July. The extension of the calendar and the increase in the number of sessions for each show respond to the need to reduce the capacity of the rooms by half. There will be no outdoor shows. The seven rooms that will host the shows, in Almada and Lisbon, will have marked seats, and the use of a mask by the spectators will be mandatory.
The Festival opens to Portuguese theatrical creation, which returns to the stage after three and a half months of stopping.
The personality honored in the 2020 edition is the actor and director Rui Mendes.
