La Verbena de la Paloma
Tuesday, June 10th 2014 (7:30PM)
Gala Hispanic Theater
La Verbena de la Paloma (The Festivity of the Virgin of the Dove) is one of the most popular zarzuelas (Spanish operetta) of all times. Set in Madrid in the late 19th century, the story focuses on sweethearts Julian and Susana, whose love endures the amusing meddling of an old bachelor suitor. As background to the plot, this zarzuela presents a parade of characters drawn from Madrid’s Belle Epoque. The dialogues are sharp and witty, and the catchy music includes some of the most celebrated zarzuela tunes, such as the famous habanera "¿Dónde vas con manton de Manila?". SUNG IN SPANISH WITH ENGLISH SUPERTITLES.

La Dolorosa

Rafael

Teatro Lirico of DC & Zarzuela Di Si

"What went right was that tenor Alvaro Rodriguez (who alternates with Pablo Henrich on 10/4, 10/7), who played Rafael, stunned us into a submissive state of awe, by delivering an anguished narration of Mary’s torment as she watches her son slowly dying on the Cross. How this local singer has grown in stage presence since he was first seen (by this reviewer) in the zarzuela Bohemios by Amadeo Vives in 2007.

Effortlessly, Rodriguez handles this exquisite aria with sensitive shading, nuance, and impressive stage presence and dignity. Rafael relates to a scowling Father Lucas (baritone Sacin) and reserved Father Prior (bass-baritone Eduardo Castro) how the Virgin Mary walks endlessly on the “Cold Rock of Calvary” (“La roca fria del Calvario”) and represents “suffering humanity,” that can never be consoled. Yet from Rodriguez’ performance, I felt uplifted, and exalted.

Rodriguez succeeded in capturing the humility of an emotional mixed-up, young lover, a victim of unrequited love."

DC Theatre Scene's REVIEW
"... another high point is reached when the young and also impoverished Gustavo, (Alvaro Rodriguez), becomes a strong contender. Rodriguez, handles well the high reaches of the glorious ballad/aria, “Flor Roja,” or “Red Flower.” His voice takes on a warm immediacy and clear urgency that in a crescendo of commitment in declaring his love for Rosaura..." - DC Theatre Scene

1776 (Edwards & Stone)

George Read

Utah Festival Opera

Life! Liberty! The pursuit of happiness! 1776 is the inspiring tale of the Declaration of Independence and the birth of a new nation. John Adams, played by Michael Ballam, leads our founding fathers in creating a new nation conceived in liberty. The wit of Ben Franklin and the romance of Thomas Jefferson combine with Adams’ fiery spirit to tell the story of America’s birth. Join us for rousing tunes and sprightly humor as we celebrate the independent men of inspired vision who made 1776 such a remarkable time in history.

Luisa Fernanda

Javier

Zarzuela Di Si

"This young opera singer [Rodriguez] proves he can let out all the stops but also shades his voice for sensitive moments. Hopefully, Rodriguez will continue to strive for the pianissimo nuances, as in the famous aria “De este apacible rincon de Madrid.”... Both Sacin and Rodriguez have the confidence to deliver high powered arias that could project to the back row of a big opera house."
