Spanish Lyric Opera is presenting their new Zarzuela “LA VERBENA DE LA PALOMA” performance are: March 15-16, 8pm and 17, 2pm
‘La Verbena de la Paloma’ (The Fair of the Virgin of la Paloma ) is probably the best-known zarzuela (Spanish operetta) on an international level, and which has been performed in many theaters in Spain and abroad since it’s premiere back in 1894. Considered by many as one of the greatest zarzuela’s of all time, the zarzuela is set in Madrid, at around the time it was premiered (1894) during the festivity of the Virgin of the Holy Spirit.
Directed by Diego Iglesias (one of our own!) and featuring the BADO Orchestra directed by Ezra Haugabrooks, this zarzuela presents a parade of characters drawn from Madrid’s Belle Epoque.
