La Revoltosa- one of the most loved pieces of zarzuela comes to the Teatros del Canal

Running from 30th April until 8th May at the Teatros del Canal, is La Revoltosa, the story of a beautiful rebellious young women who causes quite a stir in a typical working class barrio of Madrid during the 19th century. Written by Carlos Fernández Shaw and José López Silva, with music by Ruperto Chapí,  it has come to be one of the best loved zarzuelas since it was first perfromed in Barcelona back in 1897.
