“Ah! Zarzuela. There’s much to be said on that subject. For one, it’s discrete. But, well, if you all insist...”. As if they were in an anatomy class, the main characters of El estudiante y la zarzuela get caught up in the question “What is zarzuela?”, unravelling the history of the genre and, by extension, the city, which has been the birthplace and inspiration of many of the genre’s works since the 17th century.
The big “hits” by Pérez Soriano, Moreno Torroba, Asenjo Barbieri and Sorozábal feature curses, love tangles, socio-political differences and open-air parties on the banks of the Manzanares River, as well as some very modern stories and emotions. This production, directed by Raquel Acinas, is narrated by a baritone –played by the well-known Manuel Lanza– and a soprano who, at the same time, live out their own parallel storyline on stage, which is the basis of the various musical numbers that arise.
Original idea, dramaturgy and direction: Raquel Acinas
Cast: Manuel Lanza (baritone), Ruth Terán (soprano) and Miguel Huertas (soprano)
Lighting design and technical management: Ruth Alonso
