Opera on Tap Chicago and New World Productions with the support of Main Street Opera are proud to present an evening of Spanish music and theater entitled “Shadows, Stories, and Songs”. The show will feature two one act musical works – an adaptation of Jacinto Guerrero’s zarzuela “The Guest at the Sevillano Inn” and Manuel de Falla’s puppet opera “Master Peter’s Puppet Show”. Both shows will be sung in Spanish with English subtitles provided.
“The Guest at the Sevillano Inn” is a tale inspired by Miguel de Cervantes’ “La Ilustre Fregona”. When Raquel, the fair daughter of Toledo’s finest swordsmith, Maese Andres, is kidnapped by the disreputable count Don Diego, it is up to the honorable court painter Juan Luis, his affable squire Rodrigo, and the witty kitchen maid Constancica, to rescue her.
