About This Show

Hearts and clubs, forgotten love and new love, enchantment… This is the core of the “In Series” unique pocket-opera double-bill, as they meld an American operatic gem into a Spanish zarzuela classic. When the disenchanted card players of A Hand of Bridge unwittingly step into the romantic, magical world of The Little Barber of Lavapies, amazing things happen!

In Samuel Barber’s pocket-sized A Hand of Bridge, two couples play cards and share their amusing–or devastating–inner thoughts.

A couple’s fading relationship rekindles when they are swept away by the magic of the theatre at the Spanish zarzuela The Little Barber of Lavapiés [El Barberillo]. Romantic intrigue + uproarious goings-on + Madridés Lavapiés neighborhood = delightful light opera classic by Francisco A. Barbieri.
