The Zarzuela Project
the zarzuela Project at the mariachi conservatory
Zarzuela is the beautiful and melodic form of musical theater popular throughout Spain and Latin America and known for its passion, fire and comedy. The Zarzuela Project is a collaboration with The Mariachi Conservatory. Inspired by LA Opera General Director Plácido Domingo's deeply rooted love for the art form—his parents were famous zarzuela performers—the Zarzuela Project provides classes where participants are trained in singing and acting, and learn about the history of Zarzuela. Classes culminate in performances at various venues where family, friends and the local community enjoy this exciting art form.
Want to get involved? Participation in the Zarzuela Project is offered free of charge to adults and students. Classes are held on Wednesday evenings at The Mariachi Conservatory (on the campus of Salesian High School) and all are welcome to participate.
