“El Caserío” will be re-staged at Bilbao’s Teatro Arriaga featuring Javier Franco in the role of Tío Santi


From June 21st to 29th, Bilbao’s Teatro Arriaga will stage the zarzuela entitled “El Caserío”, by Jesús Guridi. The work premiered at Madrid’s Teatro de La Zarzuela in 1926, with libretto by Federico Romero and Guillermo Fernandez Shaw. Baritone Javier Franco will play the role of Tío Santi, a part he already performed successfully with this production, featuring stage direction by Pablo Viar. There will be six performances of this show co-produced by the Teatro Arriaga and Oviedo’s Teatro Campoamor, whose premiere in 2011 was a resounding success. Miguel Roa will be conducting the Coro Rossini and the Orquesta Sinfónica de Bilbao.
