"La rosa y el sauce" - Opera Forward Festival 2021
A little snippet of yesterday’s livestream with Opera Forward Festival 2021, Het Nationale Ballet - Dutch National Opera & Ballet , and the @dnoperastudio on our live studio segment about “Folk songs & diversity”. “La rosa y el sauce” (The Rose and the Willow) by Argentinian composer Carlos Guastavino, poetry by Fernán Sylva Valdés. Soloist: Jose Simerilla Romero, Accompanied by Lochlan Brown. Translation: The rose began to bloom Embracing the willow tree, The passionate tree, passionately It loved the rose so much. But a little girl, a coquettish girl But a little girl, a coquettish girl Has stolen the rose And the desolate willow tree Is crying for the rose. Is crying for the rose.
