Go back

August 2011

“In the 119 years history of tiatr, stalwarts of tiatr stage like Saib Rocha, Minguel Rod, C. Alvares, Alfred Rose and others have immensely contributed to the development of tiatr, its song and music and hence it should be the duty of present generation of tiatr lovers to pay respect and tributes to the dedicated service rendered by these stalwarts of tiatr stage” stated Mr. Tomazinho Cardozo, President of Tiatr Academy Goa. He was speaking during the special monthly programme ‘Somplolea Tiatristancho Ugddas’ – (Remembering Tiatr Artistes of Yester Years) organized by Tiatr Academy Goa on 24th August 2011 at TAG’s Conference Hall.

John Claro Fernandes, a veteran tiatr artiste who spoke on the lives and works of Saib Rocha, Minguel Rod and Felicio Cardozo stated that these artistes have enriched the tiatr stage through their hard work. They never hoped to get financial benefits for the selfless service that they gave to the tiatr stage, its song and music.

Sharon Mazarello highlighting the works of late C. Alvares the ‘Ace Director’ of Konkani stage and late Alfred Rose ‘The Melody King of Konkani Song’ stated that C. Alvares as a writer, director, actor and duets singer has no parallel in the history of tiatr while the one and only Alfred Rose deserves the titles of ‘Melody King’ and ‘Golden Voice of Goa’ due to his melodious voice and for his sincere efforts to take Konkani Kantar to every nook and corner of the world.

Shri. Tomazinho Cardozo spoke on the lives and works of Rosary Ferns and the late musician Francis Antonio Fernandes and highlighted their contribution to the progress of tiatr stage.
