LA ZARZUELA Friday 17th November at 6:30pm.
Conducted in English
Zarzuela is a Spanish Lyric-dramatic genre that alternates between spoken and sung scenes, the latter incorporating operatic and popular song, as well as dance.
Carlos de la Riva will present two Zarzuelas from the Spanish light operatic genre to highlight the music and language of the period. The talk will be backed by written material in the original language to help those with basic and moderate level of Spanish.
This is a lyric-dramatic genre that alternates between spoken and sung scenes. The name derives from a Royal hunting lodge, the Palacio de la Zarzuela near Madrid. In 18th-century Bourbon Spain, Italian artistic style dominated the arts and Zarzuelas, though still written to Spanish texts, changed to accommodate the Italian vogue.

FILM: ALTAMIRA (in Spanish with English subtitles)
At Cambridge Spanish Centre (Not-for-profit)
A historical drama in which Hugh Hudson and Antonio Banderas team up to tell the troubled history of Spain’s Altamira cave paintings.
“In 1868, Marcelino Sautuola (Antonio Banderas), discovers Patheolitic paintings inside Spain’s Altamira’s caves. As Sautuola tries to expose the discovery to the academic world, he’s met with skeptics claimng he created the paintings to get rich, and spends the rest of his life trying to prove them wrong”. Amongst the skeptics is a high churchman, played with “a wildly improbable, sinister lasciviousness by Rupert Everett, who gamely seeks to sidestep one caricature but only finds another to replace it”.
Director: Hugh Hudson
Cast: Antonio Banderas, Rupert Everett, Henry Goodman, Nicholas Farrell, Clément Sibony, Javivi, in amongst others.
