São João National Theatre Partnership

Come to the theatre with us and get discounts on train tickets and show tickets.

Porto's Teatro Nacional São João is classified as a national monument and is one of the most influential cultural entities in the country. It offers a diversified programme with texts by classical playwrights, which intersect with up-and-coming contemporary national and international playwrights.  

Most of the plays are subtitled in English so foreigners can also enjoy the TNSJ performances, including those at Teatro Carlos Alberto (TeCA) and the Mosteiro de São Bento da Vitória.
