New production of the Teatro de la Zarzuela

In this production of the Teatro de la Zarzuela, we are presented with two contrasting ways of viewing the Baroque period.
La guerra de los gigantes is considered the final, last important and completely Spanish stage work before the onset of a new style of Italian influence which Durón used in his productions of 1710 and 1711. Stage director Gustavo Tambascio, moves the story forward to a European country in 1959-1960. Olympus is a high-powered company called “Júpiter Salvatierra”, a business of heavy industry, with a management made up of women. It is a fresh take on the class struggle where the Giants are the working class and the Olympus Gods are the wealthy owners of the company.
In El imposible mayor en amor, le vence Amor, Tambascio opts for a production as similar as possible to what an audience of the 18th century would have seen. Totally respecting Baroque form, the scenery, costumes, lighting, gestures, rhetoric and dance all transport us back in time to that tradition of musical theatre.
