Note of Condolence for Eunice Muñoz
Eunice Muñoz, the most recognised and awarded actress in Portugal, passed away.
On June 16 and 17, 2021, Teatro do Noroeste – Centro Dramático de Viana had the opportunity to program for Teatro Municipal Sá de Miranda the show with which Eunice Muñoz bid farewell to the stage, first with a recitivism and, soon after, with an extra session because the tickets for the first presentation sold out in a few hours.
With an enormous financial effort for the Resident Company of the Teatro Municipal Sá de Miranda, the show was programmed and integrated in the 30 Years of the Future, a cycle with which the Teatro do Noroeste – Centro Dramático de Viana marks, in 2021 and 2022, three decades of activity of creation and professional artistic programming in Viana do Castelo and in Alto Minho.
At the end of the first recitation, Elisabete Pinto, actress and President of Teatro do Noroeste – Centro Dramático de Viana offered Eunice Muñoz, on behalf of the Company, a Valentine’s handkerchief specially embroidered by Ana Sousa, member of the Regular Theatre Workshops of the Community Project, on which the verse is read:
“In this initiative
we show you gratitude
Eunice our diva
you stay in our hearts”.
Everything was not too much to pay homage to Eunice Muñoz still alive, in what was her last passage through Viana do Castelo and the Municipal Theatre Sá de Miranda.
The President of the Republic decreed April 19th 2022, as a National Day of Mourning in memory of Eunice Muñoz.
