For the role of Lisa in “American in Paris”, Mirtes Monteiro would have flown halfway around the world.

The 32-year-old Brazilian talks about the roles of dreams, hardships and another actor named Neymar.
OÖNachrichten: Ms. Monteiro, you speak four languages, learn dancing, singing, drama and circus and are a star in the musical stages of the world. What are you doing in Linz?
Mirthi Monteiro: Theater is an experience that I absolutely wanted to do. The theater is great, the productions are great. I often heard that Linz must be insane. The people who are on stage are so good. It is a great honor for me to be here. First of all, I like the role of Lisa, which I am allowed to play here. This is a gift.
You grew up in Sao Paulo, how are you in the cosmopolitan city of Linz?
I love Sao Paulo, but it is too big. You have much more time here. Cozy.
The feeling of life – dancing, playing football, carnival – implanted most of the Brazilians and at the same time a chance to get to the top?
I think it's in the blood. I wake up in the morning, start music and start dancing. We are very extroverted. We are fighters, we make simple ones and we try to achieve our dreams.
Do you have a favorite football player? Neymar is an almost active colleague.
He can do nothing. So he can act. I love Roberto Carlos and Ronaldo.
How did you start your artistic career?
I started from below. I was a dancer, and I grew up in the countryside, and then I returned to Sao Paulo alone at the age of 18. In 21, I won a dance audition for the “King of Lions” in Hamburg. It was insane! Eleven years ago, I went to Germany without saying a word about German or English. That was a big change. I was brave and very disciplined and had almost no privacy for many years.
They spent the last three years with Princess Jasmina in Aladdin Disney in Hamburg. How did you survive it?
There were about a thousand speeches eight times a week. It's enough.
