La Zarzuela Inc. presents a new staged version of the beloved classic in an original free adaptation by Jorge Arcila and Daniel Daroca.
Luisa Fernanda, a young woman from Madrid, hesitates between Javier, her first love, and Vidal, the landowner from Extremadura who courts her. The plot develops against a backdrop of political instability leading to an armed insurrection seeking to topple the monarchy. The quest for freedom and equality runs through the work, as the characters are entangled by duty, mores, love, and desire.
The music by Moreno Torroba and the agile dialogues by Romero and Fernández Shaw promise to deliver an enjoyable evening. The work is performed in the Spanish original. The cast includes: Greisel Domínguez and Erika Vasallo (as Luisa Fernanda), Kiley Hernández and Lucía Panizza (as Carolina), Silvia Valle and Silvia Ludueña (as Mariana), Silenia Rodríguez (as Rosita), Eduardo Calcaño and Carlos Silva (as Javier), Carlos Jimeno and José Tauler (as Vidal), Miguel Cervantes (as Nogales), Rolando Valdés (as El Saboyano), and Karel Morell (as Aníbal). The artistic production team includes Jacqueline Solórzano and Xiomara Ponce (virtual scenery design and concept, props, graphic design), Carlos Jimeno (props and scenery design and concept), Greisel Dominguez, Jorge Arcila and Daniel Daroca (musical direction), Zayli Escalona and Daniel Daroca (musical preparation), and Lucia Panizza (costume research and concept, graphic design, and marketing). This production is presented in collaboration with Voices of Miami, Florida Opera Prima, and The Opera Atelier.
