‘The girl with the bunch of roses’ was first performed in Madrid at the Fuencarral Theatre in 1934, a Tuesday the thirteenth. It is a lyrical farce in two acts set in the square of a Madrid neighbourhood.

As its author Pablo Sorozabal states in his autobiography ‘My life and my work’: “… that a Basque educated in music in Germany… seeks to write a farce in two acts with the action taking place on the same date as the opening night… that does not enter anyone’s head.” Remember that three years previously, the Second Republic had been declared. However, this story about a florist, proud of her working class background, who was being courted by a mechanic and a pilot, which also features a manicurist, a scrap iron merchant and a waiter, nicknamed “the walking encyclopaedia” due to his verbal diarrhoea, enjoyed immediate and absolute success, that endures today.

This production, which is produced by the Campoamor Theatre, is stage directed by Emilio Sagi, grandson of Emilio Sagi Barba and nephew of Emilio Sagi Vela, both great baritones, the first the impresario of the Fuencarral Theatre and the second the actor who played Joaquín, the mechanic in love, in 1934.

Orchestra: Bilbao Orkestra Sinfonikoa – BOS.
Director: Nacho de Paz.


In 1924, Fritz Lang undertook one of his most ambitious film projects: Los nibelungos, inspired by the epic poem “The song of the Nibelungs” and comprised up of the films The death of Siegfried and The revenge of Kriemhild. Arriaga Theatre and the Bilbao Orkestra Sinfonikoa offer a special concert in which the BOS, conducted by Nacho de Paz, performs the music from the first of the two films in this project, The death of Siegfried (in the original “Siegfried Tod”), while the film is projected on a giant screen.

Larger than life, inspired by mediaeval Norse legends and enriched by the striking imagery of German expressionism, The death of Siegfried is a monumental performance. On presenting the story of Siegfried, Fritz Lang took full advantage of cinematic innovations and the creative vision of the artists of the production company Decla-Bioscop. The imposing trees, the treasure-filled caves, and the seventy-foot dragon were built to life-size scale in the studio’s workshops. Special effects technicians devised new formats and optical tricks when the perspective of the action was too immense to be reduced to the confines of a studio. The result – Siegfried – astounds, not only for re-narrating the intriguing 13th-century legend but also for the magical technical resources that brought it to life 700 years later.

Considered a masterpiece of German silent films, its soundtrack was composed by Gottfried Huppertz, whose music we were able to enjoy not long ago at the Arriaga in the concert-screening of Metropolis. His composition adds to the scenes as well as the characters. Barely three years after the centenary of its premiere, with the film restored and thanks to the recovery of the score preserved in the German Cinematex, we can now see this jewel of cinema on the big screen of Arriaga Theatre together with a live orchestra.
