Luisa Fernanda at the Ziff Ballet Opera House through November 26

A love triangle including a beautiful woman, a dashing army officer, and a wealthy landowner told in Spanish and song. No, this is not your typical Univision novella. It's the setting of Federico Moreno Torroba's zarzuela, set during Spain's 1868 republican-monarchist conflict. A zarzuela is a form of musical theater presented with Spanish lyrics and spoken word. Presented by Florida Grand Opera, Luisa Fernanda, which premiered in Madrid 79 years ago, is a heart-wrenching story about taking a chance on love, told with visually stylish set pieces and memorable musical theater. FGO's production is conducted by Pablo Mielgo and directed by Emilio Sagi.
