Approximate duration: 2 hours and 30 minutes

Zarzuela in three acts by Francisco Camprodón
Music by FRANCISCO ASENJO BARBIERI
Worldpremiered at Teatro del Circo in Madrid, September 15, 1854
Production of the Teatro de la Zarzuela (2010)

Five years since it was last performed, this production from the 2009-10 season returns to the Teatro de la Zarzuela. It is a revival of one of the most significant scores of Francisco Asenjo Barbieri with a text by Francisco Camprodón. This was a zarzuela which had not been seen on this stage for many years, even though some of the pieces — the chorus «Vuelta al trabajo», the bolero «Niña que a vender flores vais a Granada» or the finale of the second act «Mil parabienes al orador»— are close to the heart of all those who love the genre. Consequently, the revivial is an opportunity to enjoy the complete musical score along with the story of the adventures of a fugitive queen in 18th century Portugal.

Synopsis

Queen Maria of Portugal (Catalina) is about to come of age; in the meanwhile, the Conde de Campomayor acts as the regent. Aware of the poverty of her people, and that there are many jewels in the royal jewelry box, the queen decides to convert them into money, replacing the real jewels with false ones without anyone knowing.
