Trilogía de los Fundadores

Catalina / The Blue Domino / The Devil in Power

This is a novel proposal with three of the works which greatly contributed to the Zarzuela, the Spanish lyrical genre, in the finest years of Romanticism. Three splendid theatrical examples of the great work of Gaztambide, Arrieta and Barbieri, which present, respectively, three delightful complex love stories in historical settings. The first work, Catalina, is set against a military background in Finland towards the end of the17th century; the second, the worlds of courtiers in Madrid under Philip IV with The Blue Domino; the last, with The Devil in Power, moves to the court of the Bourbons in Madrid at the start of the 18th century.

The playwright and stage director, Álvaro del Amo, sets out to highlight the musical numbers as the plot develops, and to maintain the essence of the dialogue -in shorter form- which is articulated through the mouths of some of the characters, who will serve as guides in each one of the stories. In each case it is a question of keeping the original relationship between what is spoken and what is sung.
