- The zarzuela originated in Baroque era Spain, and experienced a romantic transformation in the 19th century. As a result of its great popularity, it rapidly spread far and wide – to Catalonia, Cuba, Mexico and the Philippines – and everywhere it took on the characteristics of the new cultural environments
- The Spanish baritone Plácido Domingo brought the best operatic works to a wide audience of music lovers with the Three Tenors (Domingo, Carreras, Pavarotti)
- The soprano María José Siri trained her singing voice at the Paris Conservatory and in Vienna. Her lyric and emotional voice, her authentic acting and her all-round artistic presence, are what brought her onto the world’s most famous stages

The Spanish baritone, the one and only Plácido Domingo, whom we know as a member of the legendary Three Tenors (Domingo, Carreras, Pavarotti), whose best-selling classical music albums brought the best operatic works to a wide audience of music lovers, and whose long career has also seen him play more than 150 roles in musical theatre. He will be joined on stage by the soprano of Uruguayan origin María José Siri, who was born in Italy and trained her singing voice at the Paris Conservatory and in Vienna. Siri is known for her lyric and emotional voice, her authentic acting and her all-round artistic presence, as was characteristic of singers in the past. Together with the Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra and the Spanish conductor Jordi Bernàcer, who studied conducting in Valencia and Vienna, and perfected his skills as assistant to Lorin Maazel, they will present fragments from zarzuelas – the Spanish lyric dramatic genre with musical highlights (overtures, instrumental intermezzi, arias, ensembles etc.) that is not often performed in Slovenia – written by the Spanish composers Moreno Torroba and Ruperto Chapí.
