Zarzuela is a musical drama consisting of alternating passages of dialogue, songs, choruses, and dancing, that originated in Spain in the seventeenth century. Its name comes from the Zarzuela palace, Madrid. It is also popular in Latin America. Zarzuela declined in the eighteenth century but revived in the early nineteenth century. The revived zarzuela dealt with more popular themes and was called género chico. A more serious version developed, known as género grande.
