After the landing of the Portuguese court in 1808, Rio de Janeiro witnessed a significant development of musical activity, mainly through the foundation of the Chapel Royal (Capela Real) and the Royal Theatre St. John (Real Teatro São João). The sacred music produced in the period gained importance as well as the presentations on the stage of the Royal Theatre, attended by musicians and lyrical foreign companies, allowing the contact with the music and the operas of success in Europe. Hence, these institutions have played an important role: more than a space for the presentation of operas and musical pieces, such space functioned as a vector of development for musical activity in the city. Therefore, the objective of this paper is to analyze the main lines of the development of musical activity in Rio de Janeiro, from the foundation of the Chapel Royal in 1808 and the Royal Theatre St. John in 1813.
