The original manuscript and music by Pastor Rubira and Manuela Penella, written in 1907 is rediscovered. We have reached an agreement with two internationally recognized musical greats. Maestro: Dr. James Brooks Bruzzese, the artistic director for 20 years of the Symphony of the America’s, located in South Florida. Maestro has conducted arranged musical symphonies from all over the world; to his credit he has recorded 22 musical CDs’. Recognized and awarded as a Latin American-Hispanic, musical expert and cultural Ambassador. He is has won awards for his work with children in musical education. James will be working along side wonderfully talented musical composer Eduardo Magallanes, whom has long list of musical and artistic accomplishments, in the industry. Eduardo is internationally recognized in conducting, writing, arranging, musicals for individuals, and symphonies. His resume includes working closely with many musical greats like Placido Domingo. Eduardo is working on this Zarzuela, musical arrangements from the original Manuel Penella, sheet music. Eduardo stated he was attracted to this project because of his Hispanic and Mexican musical roots. He is very comfortable, with Zarzuelas, they are in his blood. With this dynamic duo’s 70 years of musical expertise and talents in writing, musical orchestration and stage production, we have a winner. It time for the public to experience a fresh new Manuela Penella, Zarzuela. The Da Vinci Chalice Group expects to have the Zarzuela production, along with its new musical and stage scores, ready by the end of summer 2008. We are very excited about timing and the multi-talented people that are working on the project. “We asked for help and got the best.” Already we have wonderful positive feedback from within the industry; people are very excited about the project. We believe this work will be as successful as “El Gato Montes” was with its world audience.
