Zarzuela a la Cubana: María & Cecilia
A sizzling double bill of Cuba’s most famous zarzuelas: Lecuona’s María la O and Roig’s Cecilia Valdés. In both works, iconic characters inhabit stories of forbidden inter-racial romance and inevitable betrayal and tragedy. Music director Carlos César Rodríguez brings their duality of soaring melodies and irresistible rhythms to full life. Directed and choreographed by Abel Lopez and Jaime Coronado. Sung in Spanish, with English dialogue by Karen Zacarías.
