LA VERBENA DE LA PALOMA

 
11 
 
La verbena de la Paloma is one of the greatest zarzuelas of all the genre. Bretón composed this score in only nineteen days. He wrote: "I composed in the cafés, the taverns, even on benches in the street.” It was an enormous and instantaneous success. Since then, it has been performed countless times in Spain and America. 
Since Falla was Bretón´s pupil, Teatro de la Zarzuela premiered  this famous title in a double program, together with the early Falla´s Los Amores de la Inés,during the Season 2013/14. Conductor Cristóbal Soler and Scene director José Carlos Plaza led a long cast of well-known Spanish singers.
