Nuno Silva Takes A DARKER SHADE OF FADO on Tour, Beg. Today
NUNO SILVA is a highly individual artist whose career spans contemporary dance, classical opera, fado singing and West End musicals. Known to dance audiences for his muscular physicality and fine fado singing - particularly as the prodigal son in Arthur Pita's 'God's Garden' - and to West End audiences from his dazzling performance in 'Cabaret' at the Savoy Theatre and his inventive, physical theatre role in 'The Light Princess' at the National Theatre, Nuno returns to his first love, the fado music of Portugal in his own show A Darker Shade of Fado which kicks off a UK tour at the Lighthouse in Poole today, April 26th.
A Darker Shade of Fado brings together an international team of dancers and musicians and promises to hold audiences enthralled with a compelling blend of sensual dance and soul-baring song. Leading an outstanding cast, Nuno draws on the traditions of his Portuguese roots to evoke the magic of Lisbon's historical old quarters using live music and song, an absorbing story of love and jealousy, contemporary choreography and an enveloping, mystical atmosphere...
