Biography

Active: 1890s-1900s
Country Of origin: Spain

After a period conducting the band in his home village, Chapí studied at the Madrid Conservatory. He later earned his living as a cornettist in the Circo de Price theatre orchestra, and during this period he composed an overture and his first zarzuela, Abel y Cain. Chapí composed more than 100 zarauelas, many so popular that they ran for 100 consecutive nights. They appealed to the middle and upper classes, in contrast with those of Chueca which were popular with the lower class. ~ Lynn Vought~ Rovi
