Syndicate of Seducers
Zarzuela, 1Hr 10Mins
A unique form of Opera, to debut for the first time in Mumbai on our stage! This singular performance, by legendary Spanish Composer Jose Serrano is known as Zarzuela. Originating from Madrid, zarzuela is a traditional Spanish lyric genre, similar to operetta. A unique showcase of the rhythms and traditions of the diverse cultures of Spain, it is a variety of musical theatre in which dramatic action is carried through a combination of songs interspersed with dialogue. Much like a Bollywood extravaganza, with comparisons to Broadway and Vaudeville, it also serves as keen social commentary and provides light comedic entertainment as opposed to the traditional drama of the Opera. One of the most recognizable zarzuela compositions, El Trust de los Tenorios (‘The Syndicate of Seducers’, 1910) comes to life through the talents of Conductor Roc Fargas i Castells with a chamber orchestra of 18 instrumentalists, and Stage director Yashraj Jadhav who will direct young Indian soloists of The Neemrana Music Foundation and 30 choir singers.
Let the protagonists take you from Madrid to India, via Paris and Venice!
