Bibi Ferreira, the grand dame of Brazilian stage, performs a historic concert that celebrates her 90th birthday. A musical journey featuring highlights from her 72 year career, performing Broadway standards, Edith Piaf, Amalia Rodrigues, and the Brazilian popular songbook of Tom Jobim and Chico Buarque, among others.
When we talk about the artist Bibi Ferreira, we are talking about a woman of the Theater. Throughout her career she has unceasingly performed, directed and produced, making history along the way as the leader behind the most important moments of Brazilian theater in the 20th century. Bibi, already in her stage debut, alongside her father Procópio Ferreira, earned the label “The Great Actress,".
Bibi was responsible for bringing musical comedy to Brazil. She was also the lead actress of three internationally acclaimed successes: “Hello Dolly,” “My Fair Lady” and “Man of La Mancha.” Another great success of Bibi’s careers was the musical “Gota d’Água” by Chico Buarque and Paulo Pontes. “Gota d’Água” is considered a milestone in the history of Brazilian theater. Another hallmark in Bibi’s career is the musical “Piaf – The Life of a Star of the Song”.
Even at age 90, Bibi continues to play to sold-out audiences in Brazil. In 2012 alone she performed over 75 concerts in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo to a total live audience of almost 80,000 fans.
