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!
