LUISA FERNANDA is brought to us by the Spanish Lyric Theatre, directed by Diego Iglesias.


Performed in Spanish with English super titles, this Zarzuela is in many ways the last great romantic zarzuela. Musically Luisa Fernanda embodies its composer’s ideals of El casticismo – an attempt to foster the tradition of pure, popular nationalism. The music offers colorful Spanish charm, as well as fair helpings of graceful Viennese musical comedy and Italian operatic verismo.

¬†Luisa Fernanda is a love story told within the time of the popular 1868 uprising against the Queen of Spain. The themes relate to the universal desire for democracy; this was the first time in Spanish history that the people spoke out against their monarchy and demanded a government that spoke for the people. This story is very relevant to today’s society and is told beautifully through traditional Zarzuela style.
