Summary
Manuel de Falla's 'La vida breve' is arguably the greatest opera in the entire Spanish repertoire, a tragic Zarzuela, a mix of Verismo, local Andalusian color, and French Impressionism. Staged by the brilliant Giancarlo del Monaco with legendary music director Lorin Maazel, and a cast of Zarzuela specialists of the highest order, the performance from Valencia was hailed triumphant. Maestro Maazel led an exquisite array of soloists headed by Chilean soprano Cristina Gallardo-Domas
