Sgae

Considered to be the greatest musical success of Pablo Luna's career, this operetta premiered towards the end of 1923 in this same theatre. Many consider it to be the best of his works, backed up by a curious and entertaining libretto. After its premiere, the production travelled to Cuba, Mexico and continued its life cycle on stages until the 1950s.
According to its stage director, Enrique Viana, "it has been a pleasure to take on Benamor, and the fact that the Teatro de la Zarzuela has decided to stage it once more (it had not been performed at this theatre since its premiere) is a dream come true. A happy dream that is the best medicine for the nightmarish times that weare living through".
