Wot's a Zarzuela?

SAN ROQUE We often get asked what a Zarzuela is. Our usual answer is 'a Spanish operetta', which is as close as we can come. But for those who have asked, this is a great opportunity to find out exactly: This coming Friday, November 18, at 9pm, at the Juan Luis Galiardo Theatre in San Roque, the Circuito Andaluz de Música is presenting Antología de la Zarzuela, which uses several well-known zarzuelas in its repertoire. At only €5 a ticket, this is a unique chance to get to know a form of Spanish music that is almost unknown to an English-speaking audience.
