From March 25th to April 8th, the Teatro de la Zarzuela of Madrid will stage the double-bill programme Château Margaux/La Viejecita, both of which are by the composer Manuel Fernández Caballero. Château Margaux, a zarzuela in one act with libretto by José Jackson Veyán and La Viejecita, a comic zarzuela in one act with libretto by Miguel Echegaray, are staged on this occasion following a free version by Lluís Pascual.
Ruth Iniesta is participating in this production by the Teatro Arriaga de Bilbao, Teatro Campoamor de Oviedo and the Festival Grec of Barcelona, in the roles of Angelita Vargas in Château Margaux and Dolores Izquierdo and Luisa in La Viejecita. Stage direction is by Lluís Pascual and Paco Azorín is in charge of scenography. Conducting the Orquesta de la Comunidad de Madrid and the Coro del Teatro de la Zarzuela will be Miquel Ortega.
We will also have the opportunity to see the Zaragoza-born soprano in Le coq d’or at the Teatro Real of Madrid and also at the Prague Spring Festival, in Trilogía de Tonadillas by Blas de Laserna.
