Zarzuela ‘The Syndicate of Seducers’

The Neemrana Music Foundation in partnership with the Embassy of Spain in India, Instituto Cervantes Nueva Delhi and Royal Opera House Mumbai are bringing to India the best of Spanish zarzuela on Thursday 27th February to Delhi.

Zarzuela is a popular genre of musical comedy originated in Spain that uses a mix of songs and spoken scenes, very much like an operetta; an unique showcase of the rhythms and traditions of the diverse cultures of Spain.

The Hilarious Spanish Operetta ‘The Syndicate of Seducers’ (1910) by José Serrano, is one of the most recognizable zarzuela compositions. A hilarious comedy that takes the audience from Madrid (Spain) to India, via Paris and Venice:

The light, and slightly naughty plot, sees the chairman of the Syndicate of Seducers hurtling around the world with his wife in tow, to save her from seduction by a vengeful fellow member. This is a pretext for a series of wholly engaging divertissements nominally set in Paris, Venice … and an India oddly fantasized by the composer!
