When I received an email from Jim Furlong, Director of Arts for the Hudson Guild, seeking community members for “Romanzas de Zarzuela,” I knew I had to try out for it. Furlong explained that he was a big fan of a recording called “Romanzas de Zarzuela” sung by Spanish operatic soprano Montserrat Caballé and they pretty much honored the structure and flow of the original recording. “However, I did interject five piano solo numbers," Furlong said. The show is divided into 13 Scenes, with dance numbers for children, youth, elders, males, females and the entire company -- "an experience that's joyful." Furlong and Westerby of the Matthew Westerby Company are already planning their next projects!
ROMANZAS DE ZARZUELA is a new dance piece offered by the Hudson Guild Theatre Company in New York featuring excerpts from several Spanish Zarzuelas. "A celebration of Spanish song and dance," so the Guild declares!
LA BOLA won’t cook unless with the best of ingredients. And the most important ingredient of all is the love with which generations of the LA BOLA clan cook for their guests. Is it any wonder that LA BOLA's famous cocido madrileño has outlived the Savoy dynasty who, in the person of Amadeo I, came to Spain to rule at the same time that Candida Santos founded Taberna LA BOLA in Madrid (1870).

"The Wife"'s premise is quite relevant to our world today in which women are caught in traditional roles while reaching to shine with their own light. (Taking a back seat has been the way most women have dealt with the male hierarchy over the year.) It is not strictly a feminist film, but rather a tender study in the reality of women’s lives still today. Recommended viewing.
