Period Musical Casting!
Period musical news out of Brazil!! Joaquina Lapinha will be played by Afro-Brazilian actress Isabel Fillardis. Joaquina Lapinha is an opera singer and actress that captivated Dom João VI ( King of the United Kingdom of Portugal, Brazil and the Algarves from 1816 to 1822) The casting choice looks great. I can't wait to see Isabel in the beautiful costumes I'm sure she'll have! Source
