About the event

The most emblematic and best-known songs of the popular Spanish zarzuela! With their heyday in Spain at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries, Zarzuelas depict everyday people with stories rooted in the politics of their times. These beautiful songs speak of love, ideals, humor, mischief, and celebration! Depicting Spain's city and country life through the centuries, from its folklore, from its gypsies, and from its national dances, the zarzuela offers romantic tributes and comic satire in catchy lyrical melodies that transport you to a century-old Spain.

This concert brings you a premier of selected songs from a new Spanish opera, Magallanes: No hay rosa sin espina (Magallanes: There is no rose without thorns) written by Italian composers, Marco Reghezza and Giovanni Scapecchi with the libretto by José Emanuel Nunez De La Fuente. Celebrating the 500th anniversary of Ferdinand Magallanes historic journey to circumnavigate the globe, these beautiful arias will surely delight!

Five talented opera singers from the current Spanish lyric scene accompany the orchestra: Elisa Cordova, soprano; Israel Lozano, tenor; Anna Tonna, mezzo-soprano; Gustavo Ahualli, baritone, and basso-baritone, Luciano Miotto. Acompanying the singers is the acclaimed flamenco dancer, Edwin Aparicio.
