A sizzling double bill of Cuba’s most famous zarzuelas: Lecuona’s María la O and Roig’s Cecilia Valdés. In both works, the genre’s most iconic characters inhabit the essence of Cuban women of color and their fateful stories of forbidden interracial romance and inevitable betrayal and tragedy. Music director Carlos César Rodríguez brings their duality of soaring melodies and irresistible rhythms to full life with Iván Navas playing Cuban percussion. Directed and choreographed by Abel Lopez and Jaime Coronado. Sung in Spanish, with English dialogue by Karen Zacarías (María la O) and Anna Deeny Morales (Cecilia Valdés) .
