Aires de Zarzuela is a 90-minute concert without intermission, directed by Luis Olmos and including a careful selection of the best zarzuela fragments.
With pieces composed by Amadeo Vives, Federico Moreno Torroba, Federico Chueca, Pablo Sorozábal and Tomás Bretón, this performance tells how a zarzuela company from the 1940s is about to hold the last rehearsal before their operatic performance over the airwaves. The team must do their best to receive acclaim from critics, the audience and advertisers.
They play duets, intermezzos and romances such as El dúo de la africana, La boda de Luis Alonso, Doña Francisquita or El niño judío.
