As a comedy, L'Heure Espagnole was a huge success at its premiere in Paris in 1904. Ravel indulged his passion for all things Spanish in this opera, with the intention of 'breathing new life into the Italian opera buffa'. His success in doing so enables the farce to gather hysterical momentum towards the unexpected, if inevitable, conclusion. Finish time: 20:40 and 20:25. Sung in French with English supertitles.

Performers Danielle de Niese (Concepcion), Etienne Dupuis (Ramiro), Francois Piolino (Torquemada), Lionel Lhote (Don Inigo Gomez), Cyrille Dubois (Conzalve).
