Revoltosa is at its heart a story about an outspoken woman who upturns traditions with her neighbors and delights in exposing social hypocrisies. This entertaining zarzuela, the most performed in Madrid, reveals the different perspectives of men and women in relationships at different stages of love —married couples who have stopped loving and young lovers exploring their first flirtation. Brimming with secret jealousies and desires, the zarzuela Revoltosa is so popular, so Spanish… and yet so universal. With its unforgettable music, hearts will burst in joyful celebration.

The ensemble features guest artists mezzo-soprano Laura Virella (Mari Pepa) and Joselu López (Felipe), who are making their GALA debut; baritone Alex Alburqueque (Candelas), also making his GALA debut; and GALA company members mezzo-soprano Anamer Castrello (Manuela) and Luz Nicolás (Gorgonia), a Helen Hayes Award nominee. Other ensemble members include Camila Taleisnik (Encarna), Christian Laguna (Tiberio), Fran Tapia (Soledad), and Luis Armando Benitez (Cándido), who all appeared in GALA’s hit On Your Feet! En español; and Santiago Alfonzo Meza (Atenedoro), who is making his first appearance at GALA.
