Ironic, humorous, mocking, funny... These are some of the terms that best define an integral part of Spanish musical theatre. Few theatrical traditions like the zarzuela and other similar genres have shown such a capacity to use satire to depict the reality of their time. The essence of the tonadilla, sainete (one-act farce) or parody was precisely their sarcastic and hilarious spirit. This series focuses on the comic side of these works and features some of the most famous zarzuelas.
