Trivia for Sure

And in case anyone asks, a zarzuela is an operetta of a traditional type, with spoken dialogue and lyrical music. The word is derived from the Spanish after La Zarzuela, the royal palace near Madrid where the operetta was first performed in 1629. Zarzuela is also the name of a seafood stew.
