At the height of the pandemic, lockdowns have been particularly challenging for artists who perform on stage.
The opening of Rio's emblematic municipal theater in Brazil provided relief for some artists though, as it lit up its stage again.
It welcomed musicians, dancers, and singers to launch virtual shows after being shut down over the past year due to COVID-19.

"We were working in a small space at home, and we did not see anyone. To have contact with others, to come back, to step on the stage of the municipal theater is a feeling of freedom."

Although the return to the theatre is limited to rehearsals and recording of concerts and shows only, the performers said they are happy to return to the stage.
When Brazilian theaters closed in March 2020, thousands of artists, dancers, musicians and backstage crew lost their jobs.
