Editorial Reviews


"Invites the reader to participate in her examination of both the historical roots and the cultural consequences of the importation of zarzuela to the New World in chapters that are carefully knitted together... Engaging and thoughtful history of Spanish lyric theater." -- Margo Milleret, New Mexico Historical Review "[Sturman's] narrative [is] based on solid inter-disciplinary historical research in Spanish and Latin American musical and stage traditions, long-term personal exposure to live zarzuela performances in New York City and El Paso, Texas, ... and extensive fieldwork among the primary participants in this theatrical culture: zarzuela performers and audiences." -- John Koegel, Ethnomusicology ADVANCE PRAISE "Brava! Hats off! Sturman addresses music, society, ethnicity, and history in a deep and meaningful way. She writes with grace, wit, and clarity, and her book is chockful of primary research that is unavailable anywhere else. We need Zarzuela, and I will be the first in line to buy my copy." -- Craig Russell

Format: Hardcover
If you don't know what Zarzuella is or even if you do you will know plenty after reading this book. It will tell you all you need to know. I can't wait until Dr. Sturman does her follow up!
Buy this book Enjoy it and show it to your friends!
