What is Zarzuela?

Zarzuela is a musical theater genre from Spain that alternates between spoken and sung scenes. It incorporates operatic and popular songs as well as dance. It is analogous to American operetta and
musical theater. The word Zarzuela may have derived from the name of a Royal hunting lodge known as the Palacio de la Zarzuela, near Madrid, where allegedly this type of entertainment was first presented at court.

 

There are two main types of Zarzuela:

- Baroque Zarzuela (1630-1750)
- Romantic Zarzuela (1850-1950)

 

The most important composers of the Zarzuela genre include Ruperto Chapí; Federico Barbieri. Federico Chueca, Pablo Sorozobal and Francisco Moreno-Torroba.
