He Teatro de la Zarzuela presents Season 2021/2022 whose 164 functions scheduled, what maintain the average of recent years, will be the embodiment of a new horizon in sight. This is what he points out Daniel Bianco, colosseum director, que tilda el nuevo curso como “la temporada de la ilusión”. And the confidence and the good tuning is not for less, since in the season that we are still the fierce threat of the covid has not been able to with this Theater: “We can proudly say that we have not delayed a single performance or canceled a single day due to covid ", points, and indicates that "all the productions of the theater, concerts and recitals have been carried out to this day ".

And he does not want to fail to mention anyone in this arduous task that has involved carrying out an entire program with the hostile circumstances that the entire society still faces.: “It has been an effort of all. Technicians, Choir, Singers, dancers, actresses, Actors and Artists who love and arm the Theater with the mission of raising the curtain every night. And so we did, mission accomplished", affirms with an undisguised satisfaction.

This explains the illusion to which the director alludes as the motto of the season in the headline of the presentation.; illusion because the music, zarzuela, will continue to play on this stage in the next season. "I firmly believe that music and scene are capable of changing the world and together improving it, and that its miracle is present when the public and artists participate in the same rhythm, the same song, the same dream, the same breath ".

And complacency transforms into deep emotion when he alludes to the public. "When we started the season we didn't know how he was going to react, if he would accompany us on this path, if I would be afraid to return ... But the response has been excellent: has once again demonstrated its loyalty by going to all our functions, following our broadcasts by streaming, our conferences and online meetings with artists. Being part of life, of the day to day of this theater ". And with a categorical statement, supports the certainty that there is only room for excitement and gratitude: "Without the audience this theater would not exist".

And Daniel Bianco wants to remember that extreme caution to which at the beginning of the season that now ends, alluded to as the only possible way to function: “As a public theater this is our first responsibility and our commitment: prudence has guided our steps and we have completed the entire season rigorously complying with all the recommendations and regulations that protect us from the coronavirus dictated in the INAEM protocol ".

The season

This that is presented is the sixth season since Daniel Bianco arrived at the Theater (although it could also be presented as the season 162 Since its founding in 1856): "This is one more stage of a long-range project whose objective pursues a specific purpose: that the Teatro de la Zarzuela continue to fulfill the mission with which it was born, which is none other than be the privileged setting of Spanish musical theater, with the inalienable vocation of being a public theater, accessible and affordable, open to anyone who wants to discover and enjoy the Spanish lyrical heritage. These are the reasons why - as our statutes say - we are and will continue to be the National Lyric Theater ".

Thus, and under that maxim, in the next season they will be presented 164 functions, maintaining the average of functions of the last years; 10 musical theater titles, of which 4 They are recoveries of the Spanish lyrical heritage: two of them in concert and two on stage; in addition to 6 lyrical titles of the great Zarzuelistic repertoire. The concert cycle with 8 proposals ranging from lyric, flamenco, pop or popular music and the cycle notes of the ambigu with 10 recitals. further, The Sunday Chamber series dedicated to Spanish female creators is extended he starts walking a new cycle by the musical director of the Theater, Guillermo García Calvo.

Daniel Bianco states in this regard that this is one of the essential functions of a public theater: be "truly" everyone's theater. Maintaining this price scale ”is a huge effort, a sacrifice that is absolutely necessary ”, indicates.


The statutes that govern the spirit and operation of the Teatro de la Zarzuela say it very clearly: the coliseum erected in 1856 should, without any pretext, safeguard and spread the Spanish lyric genre. Thus, the season will begin with the recovery of one of the capital titles of Spanish opera. We talk about ‘Circe’, work of great significance in the history of Spanish opera because in it Ruperto Chapí develops to its last consequences its own style that the Wagnerian avant-gardes assume and transpose them to the Spanish lyric. Not in vain, ‘Circe’ was (together with ‘Farinelli’ from Bretón and ‘María del Pilar’ from Giménez, both also recently recovered by the Teatro de la Zarzuela) one of the titles of the opening season of the Teatro Lírico de Madrid, Coliseum that was built precisely to give space and opportunities to Spanish opera, in contrast to the Italian and French opera that dominated the city's lyrical billboard. It will be directed by Guillermo García Calvo and will feature the voices of Session Hernández, Alejandro Roy, Rubén Amoretti and Pilar Vázquez. They will 2 functions in concert version the days 10 Y 12 of September.

After 20 years without performing at the Teatro de la Zarzuela, one of the most beloved and celebrated titles by the public faithful to the genre and its theater returns to its stage: ‘Los Gavilanes’. This was precisely the first foray of the Master Jacinto Guerrero in the big zarzuela, and it has remained until today in the repertoire and in the sentimental memory of fans. The play talks about immigration, of the passage of time, of young loves and forgotten loves.

Now a year ago, when we were still coming out of confinement, the Teatro de la Zarzuela promised to relocate all the shows that were affected between March and June 2020. During this season, all the concerts and recitals that had to be postponed have been rescheduled., and last January the new production of ‘Luisa Fernanda’ scheduled for May 2020. In November 2021 he will get over ‘La Tabernera del puerto’, a production that was not only affected by the confinement, but also by the strikes of 2018 against the merger of the Teatro Real and the Teatro de la Zarzuela. On that occasion, only five functions could be held. In november of this year, the public can enjoy, between 19 and the 28 of November from 8 functions of this essential title of Pablo Sorozábal, with musical direction by Óliver Díaz, scenic of Mario Gas, scenery Ezio Frigerio, wardrobe Franca Squarciapino and lighting Vinicio Cheli.

Between 26 January 6 February They will be offered 10 functions stories of this work that arrives for the first time on the stage of La Zarzuela. As usually happens in all the works of the San Sebastian composer, no one will be indifferent: this time, the dignity of women is vindicated (in the figure of a single mother) against the customs and morality of a time that fortunately is already history. In it we will be dazzled by the most Andalusian Sorozábal that exists, with melodies full of light and others of deep drama.

The days 4 Y 6 of March, and again following the policy of recovery of the Spanish lyrical heritage of the Theater, will be rescued from oblivion ‘Tabaré’, magnificent work like all of Tomas Breton. Premiered in its day by the tenor Francisco Viñas in 1913 at the Theatre Royal, It could only be heard in three unique performances and to this day it has never been performed again.. It is a mature composition that synthesizes the melodic lyricism of the Italian tradition, the harmonic treatment of Wagnerian opera and sounds typical of impressionism. Breton himself considered it his most personal and independent work. Y el tema sobre el que se desarrolla el argumento no puede ser más particular: la lucha entre los Charruas Indians (that populated what is now Uruguay in the 16th century) and the spanish. An unconventional theme with a libretto by Tomás Bretón himself based on the homonymous epic poem by Juan Zorrilla de San Martín.

In that occasion, the public did not understand the work because it was far from the Spanish musical tradition. But nevertheless, it is a colorful work, suggestive and fresh: a different Albéniz. The translation of the libretto of 1894 –Titled then ‘The Ring ’– has not been preserved, and that is the reason why for this representation that recovers the title a new translation into Spanish has been commissioned by Javier L.
