Description

On a hot, humid carnival night in Madrid, the people gather to celebrate the miracles of La Virgen, the famed statue and centerpiece of Paloma Street. This religious revelry includes the cast of characters found in Madrid at the turn of the 19th century — the fashionable young girls, a bevy of lecherous tradesmen, barkeeps and well-educated laborers. Friends, lovers, strangers and devotees collide in this steamy mix of Spanish-style music as the Opera Tampa Singers perform Tomas Breton’s zarzuela La Verbena de la Paloma complete with Spanish dancing, flamenco guitar and other tantalizing surprises.

zar·zue·la
/zärˈzwālə/
noun
a Spanish traditional form of musical comedy.
