The zarzuela is a uniquely Spanish genre which combines song with recitation, action and a humurous tone to create a dynamic spectacle.

10/1      Viva la Zarzuela!  The first half of the 20th century saw the incredible popularity of an exclusively Spanish genre: the zarzuela. It can be defined, superficially, as light opera without being “operettas.” Zarzuela constitutes a delicate balance between Spanish folk music, costume dramas and an operatic style completely developed in Spain. This program includes Luis Fernanda, Doña Francisquita, La rosa del azafrán and, La verbena de la Paloma.
