About
Fado Live Show - Two young voices, one female and one male, are the connection bridge between the past and modernity. They are accompanied by the Portuguese guitar and classic guitar, keeping up tradition. It is a real musical show where fado arises as the leading star, through truly exceptional voices and performances. The talent of young performers shines under its own light, conceived for a show welcomed in a respectable and comfortable space, that propels the exclusive sound of Fado, giving away with emotion the ‘Portuguese soul’. The Theatro Gymnásio in the Espaço Chiado arises restored with the mark of a new energy for the heart of Lisbon. As it occurs with other European capitals where quality proposals reveal traditions, Lisbon has now a space where you can hear and feel, daily (except Sundays), during intense 50 minutes, the sounds of the soul of a people that surprised the world through its ability to discover new paths.

We were in Lisbon for 4 days and wanted to experience Fado. We heard mixed reviews about the combined Fado/dinner venues and didn’t want to wait in line at bars only to be turned away because it was too crowded. We decided on Fado in Chiado since we were guaranteed entry by purchasing tickets in advance. The show was nice and I feel we got what we paid for but next time I’d look for a more intimate setting without amplification. I also thought the audience sing along contributed to the feeling that this production catered to tourists.

Fado is part of the UNESCO world heritage list and deserves to be enjoyed by anyone visiting. Fado in Chiado is an excellent place to listen to amazing performers in a nice and not crowded venue. We loved the live performance, the engagement with the artists, the songs. There are several restaurants that offer fado while eating, but we wanted to fully live the experience and if you want too, we really recommend to buy tickets and watch Fado in Chiado.

A great place to enjoy a Fado show. Especially for those who don't want to combine dinner with drinks and fado music. This is not a restaurant so there are no noisy cutlery or people talking. Everyone is quiet and enjoying the traditional Portuguese music. This is just the singing and guitars. The show duration is about 50 minutes. Very good experience.

I’m a bit drawn here - it is quite touristy. Especially the fact that they try to get the crowd to sign along. I would have prefered it without that. The quality of the music however was good. The man playing the local type of guitar was absolutely amazing. He was worth the show all by himself. The female singer was also very good, while the man was OK.
50 minutes is about right. You get a taste of fado.

Bought the ticket at the venue a couple of hours in advance but I was lucky. The place was full (noisy but appreciative teenagers),
The show starts at 7pm, a good time, and the show is great. A bit less than 1 hour, but intense and the artists are first class.

You get exactly what you paid for, no frills, no bad meal, and good quality Fado. The older gentleman playing the Portuguese guitarra was fantastic! Very tourist friendly, explanations in several languages. 50 minutes, no hard sell on CDs. Very enjoyable evening, one of the only shows that started at 7 pm, everywhere else was 8 or later.

Amazing experience to finish the summer night in Lisbon. Warm, genuine, skillful artistic performance. Your heart opens up to the sounds of the Portuguese guitar and the music of Fado.
I liked that it is in the concert hall rather than in a restaurant.

3.5 overall. Bought tickets online the day before the show.

We enjoyed the style and intimacy of the Fado performance (our first) that we experienced in the city of Coimbra.

"Fado in Chiado" was our second experience with Fado. It is worthwhile if one is in Lisbon and wants to experience Fado, and also if one wants to see a style different than that of Coimbra. (Thankfully) no need to have dinner and thus one can focus on the show.

Staff were very helpful, and the venue was comfortable. The performance takes place on an elevated stage, with the audience below.

Great musicians, great singers. Good price for the quality of this fado. Not only nostalgic, also passional and funny.
Very comfortable theatre, in the very center of the town, near to Café Brasileira.
Very worthy cultural event, A MUST.

15 euros very well spent. After being warned off the expensive shows with compulsory food and drink 'packages', by our hotel, we found this one, which is simply a theatrical performance of the music and song, with a simple slideshow explaining briefly the history and tradition.
Excellent performers who clearly demonstrate the passion and skill of the genre, without the hype of the tourist package.
