La Verbena de la Paloma
First performed in 1894, Tomás Bretón's vibrant tale of Spain's festival of the Virgin of the Dove is a masterpiece of the Spanish musical theater genre known as zarzuela. The loose plot centers on a bustling village apartment building where enthusiasm for the annual festival leads to romance, revelry, a few fights and, of course, lots of music. Filmed at Madrid's Festival de San Lorenzo de El Escorial. José Antonio López and Amparo Navarro star.
