Biographical/Historical note

Carlos Fernández Shaw was born in Cádiz in 1865. He wrote his first known verses when he was just 10 years old.


In 1878 he moved to Madrid with his family. After earning a law degree he joined the Scientific and Literary Athenaeum and published his first books of verses. Three years later he married Cecilia Iturralde y Macpherson and tried his luck in politics as a provincial deputy. But public life was not his vocation. He joined the editorial staff of La Época, working there for 11 years and coming into contact with Antonio Peña y Goñi and through him Ruperto Chapí, Ricardo de la Vega, Javier de Burgos, Tomás Bretón, Federico Chueca and José López Silva. Oddly enough, contact with the latter, a popular poet whose temperament was the opposite of Carlos’s, led to the lyric work Las bravías, much applauded at the Teatro de Apolo. That was in 1896, the year Carlos’s career as a librettist began.


The following year saw the premiere of La Revoltosa,done with the same companions López Silva and Chapí, a fundamental work of the chico genre. In 1898, La Chavala and Los hijos del batallón, clearly zarzuela grande, a model Fernández Shaw would also work with. A year later came Don Lucas del cigarral, with a score by Amadeo Vives.


As the new century began Carlos was almost entirely devoted to theatre, putting aside poetry and even journalism, though fears and concerns about his professional future and for those around him began to show. He nevertheless worked with different authors (Fiacro Yráyzoz, Luis López Ballesteros, Ramón Asensio Más) and musicians, (Vives, Chapí, Giménez, Morera). In 1902 Carlos ‘dared’ to take Don Quixote to the Apolo stage, accompanied by Chapí’s music. Despite some reticence and early criticism, La venta de Don Quijote was a major success and is today considered the most important work of zarzuela quijotesca.


The year 1905 was especially important in Carlos’s life. He was appointed head of the literature section at the Madrid Athenaeum and was a leading figure in celebrations of the third centennial of publication of Don Quijote at the Teatro Real (Royal Theatre), due to his well-known reciting skills. He also obtained the Fine Arts Prize for his opera La vida breve, which Manuel de Falla put to music; well-known circumstances meant Carlos would never see it performed.


The following year, besides offering El certamen de Cremona, with music by Bretón, and El triunfo de Venus, by Chapí, Fernández Shaw began showing the first symptoms of a serious illness, with inevitable consequences only five years later. The attack by the anarchist Mateo Morral against King Alfonso XIII on the day of his royal wedding to Victoria Eugenia de Battenberg, along with his nervous state before the imminent opening of El triunfo de Venus, caused him to fall into a deep depression. The doctors prescribed rest and Carlos went to Cercedilla, a small town in the mountains near Madrid. The surroundings and calm were beneficial and he began writing poems again.


But the recovery was brief. The diagnosed neurasthenia did not give way, despite further trips away from Madrid. In 1908 he published a new book of poems, Poesía de la sierra, but the health of Carlos Fernández Shaw was poor. Not even the major success of Margarita la tornera on 24 February 1909 at the Teatro Real could raise his spirits. That year the neurasthenia was accompanied by a strong pain in his face caused by trigeminal neuralgia. Contemporary medicine was unable to help, so recourse to morphine was prescribed. Though somewhat easing the pain, it ‘poisoned’ his body little by little. Carlos found support and consolation only with his son Guillermo, who from the start became his nurse, support, friend and confidante.


Carlos himself wrote in the dedication for his book Poesía del mar:
“To my son Guillermo, who for me is like a father”.

Return to table of contents
Yet Carlos continued writing poems: ¡La Patria grande!, Canciones infantiles, Canciones de Nochebuena. And theatre: Colomba, lyrical drama with music by Vives, La maja de rumbo, musical comedy with music by Emilio Serrano, Las figuras del Quijote, spoken theatre version of 1902’s La venta, La tragedia del beso, and La bendición, both for spoken theatre.


In January 1911 Cádiz named a street after Carlos, but he was unable to attend the ceremony. In his quieter moments he continued writing: El alma en pena (a very pertinent title), his last poems. And on 4 April, again at the Teatro Real, El final de Don Álvaro opened, a musical drama with music by Conrado del Campo, an event he was likewise unable to attend.


It was still too early to go to Cercedilla; it was too cold, so Carlos Fernández Shaw, with his son Guillermo ever at his side, moved into a modest house in El Pardo. There he died on the 7th of June at the age of 45.


Several significant works only came to light after he died, such as the opera La tragedia del beso, by Conrado del Campo. Also, the world began to take note of La vida breve, which began its career in Nice, due to the concern and insistence of Falla.


With him began the saga of the Fernández-Shaw, unforgettable librettists in the history of Spanish lyrical theatre. (Biography by José Prieto Marugán, 2014)
