The recovery of our Baroque opera patrimony had to endure a number of incomprehensible delays of diverse nature, but also because of certain prejudices, complexes and misunderstandings that are hard to eradicate. Fortunately, after a number of decades, this inertia is being reverted and never stops surprising us with unfamiliar and valued works. One of the latest and most spectacular is Coronis, a completely sung zarzuela attributed to Sebastián Durón – master of the Royal Chapel of Madrid – discovered by musicologists Raúl Angulo and Antoni Pon who have placed  the piece historically in  the court of Phillip V in the midst of the War of  Spanish Succession, shortly before the composer’s exile in 1706.

With two intersected stories  and a plethora of different types of characters –the nymph Coronis,  the  sea monster Tritón,  the gods Neptune and Apollo and the amusing  Menandro  and Sirene–,  this zarzuela of pastoral themes combines tragic and burlesque episodes and has a stimulating variety of stylistic  registers  -  Spanish,  French and Italian -  in the form of sumptuous choruses, intense lamenti, animated ensembles and  tonadas ( popular  theatrical folksongs) which makes it one of the most surprising and enjoyable works of the Spanish Baroque repertoire.
