A double programme bringing together two jewels of the zarzuela repertoire, which Lluís Pasqual, the stage director, transforms into a radio programme. In this version, which unfurls a new theatrical narrative, Château Margaux is part of a radio competition, and during its broadcast we hear the work’s musical numbers. The story continues with La viejecita, (The Little Old Lady) which appears in the show as if it were a performance broadcast live from the radio studio. Everything is imbued with the ambience of 1950s Spanish Radio, which Pasqual impregnates with memories from his infancy, when hearing zarzuela over the radio waves was his real musical education.
