I´m posting here a piece from Julian Arcas, who was a very good guitarrist / composer from the XIX´s second half. He was a virtuoso, who helped Antonio Torres to redefine the Spanish guitar size, shape and internal brazings. Arcas was who discovered Tarrega and fostered his early epoque. Arcas had a very prolific carrer and likewise Tarrega he made many adaptations of famous Operas/pieces to Guitar. This one is a famous Zarzuela adaptation( Zarzuela is the genuine spanish opera with talks and songs, with scripts about the popular life in the XIXs)...I hope you enjoy it
