Melody, a love triangle, and a political tempest.
Spain’s answer to operetta… or a telenovela.
Zarzuela is a Spanish lyric-dramatic genre that alternates between spoken and sung scenes, with operatic and popular songs, as well as dance. Considered one of the top zarzuelas ever written, the romantic Luisa Fernanda has been performed more than 10,000 times worldwide. This semi-staged condensed version featuring the Baumgartner Studio Artists will celebrate the first Zarzuela ever performed by the Florentine.
“In Luisa Fernanda, their characters move easily between elegant comedy of manners and revolutionary politics; between the sophistication of Madrid and the simplicity of the Spanish countryside; between romantic high spirits and near-tragic melancholy. “ — Christopher Webber
