La Rosa del Azafrán

A popular zarzuela based on Lope de Vega’s play The Dog in the Manger.

One of Spain’s lyric masterpieces, La Rosa del Azafran (The Saffron Flower) is a brilliant adaptation of Lope de Vega’s play The Dog in the Manger. Set in La Mancha, a region famous for its people’s connection to the land, its windmills, and idealistic characters such as Don Quixote; this zarzuela has all the elements to keep you on the edge of your seat: Passion, drama, gender inequalities, and two lovers trapped in a society that does not condone cross-class marriages.

The music is joyful and, it also includes showstoppers, such as the aria: No me importa que se vaya. Performed with soloists, orchestra, chorus, and dancers.
