Zarzuela! Spain’s unique brand of opera filled with music, dance, comedy and passion is coming to the Democracy Center in Cambridge on Saturday, September 28th. Be part of the production by singing the fiery choruses and clapping to the rhythmic palmas of flamenco, while lovers woo and men duel over their señoritas, and get to know a little-known gem in Harvard Square —the Democracy Center, a non-profit haven that has been proving space for events, classes, the arts, and community collaboration since 2001 with the goal of advancing peace and justice. The Boston Arts Consort performers include Elizabeth Leehey, clarinet; Eva Lorca, flamenco artist; Donal O’Sullivan, actor; Linda Papatopoli, pianist and director; Roberto Rios, flamenco guitar; Clara Sandler, mezzo-soprano; and Gary Tucker, baritone.
Doors open at 7:00 PM for guided tours of the Democracy Center. At 8:00 the music event begins with lecture by Margarita Campos, Professor of Communications, Barcelona University. Tours of the Democracy Center are free of charge. Tickets for “Zarzuela” are free to students with ID and 2 for $20 for the general public, and can be purchased at the door. Refreshments will be served.
The Democracy Center is a non-profit haven that has been providing space for grassroots, student and cultural organizations to hold events, classes, and performances for over a decade with the goal of building stronger local and global communities of action
