Marcelino de Betim interacting with his fans

Marcelino de Betim, a popular artiste of tiatr stage stated that tiatr stage made him popular among the Goans throughout the world mainly due to his songs which were not only comic but also full of pun and sarcasm. Marcelino de Betim was speaking at the Meet the Artiste – ‘Kolakarak Bhett’, a monthly programme of Tiatr Academy Goa held recently in the Black Box of Ravindra Bavan, Margao.



Speaking further, he expressed his gratitude to Titta Pretto, another veteran of tiatr stage for supporting him throughout his carrier. Marcelino de Betim who has acted in the tiatrs directed by all the stalwarts of Konkani stage right from C. Alvares, Prem Kumar, Alfred Rose, Jacint Vaz, Nelson Alfonso, Fr. Freddy J. D’Costa, etc to Menino de Bandar, Jr. Nelson, Mariano Fernandes, Comedian Domnic and others informed the audience that the circumstances under which the veteran tiatr artistes served the tiatr stage were really difficult.

Marcelino de Betim along with late M. Boyer has the distinction of performing 6 shows in a day and they could not make it for the 7th show on the same night at Chorao due to non-availability of the ferry boat at Ribandar jetty.

Numerous questions put forth by his fans namely Premanand Lotlikar, John Claro Fernandes, Rico Rod and others were systematically answered by Marcelino de Betim.
