Zarzuela Performances in Miami and Greater South Florida

The Miami Music Festival presents "An Evening of Zarzuela" at the Shepard & Ruth Broad Performing Arts Center. Saturday June 24th 2017 pm.

One of the great subgenres of the operatic art form is the Zarzuela, Spanish operetta from Spain, Cuba, and the greater Latin American repertoire. Each season, select MMF Opera Institute vocalists are coached in the style of this romantic genre and bring the familiar melodies to the community with each performance. Standards like Lecuona’s Maria, la O, and Lara’s tenor favorite Grenada will have audience members humming along in the return of our beloved concert series.
