El pájaro de dos colores, by Conrado del Campo

The "land of allegories" is the place where the action of El pájaro de dos colores [The two-colored bird] (1951), a chamber opera by Conrado del Campo (1878-1953) on a libretto by Tomás Borrás (1891-1976) is set. After the success of the chamber opera Fantochines (1923), writer and composer would collaborate again in this small-format work that was unfinished and unreleased. CEDOA of the SGAE was in charge of the preparation of the edition, including the partial orchestration by Miquel Ortega that allowed its absolute premiere. This is a new production by the Fundación Juan March and the Teatro de la Zarzuela.
