Teatro de la Zarzuela, Madrid - La del soto del Parral - Miguel

Alejandro Roy en el papel de Miguel desplegó su enorme fiato y su buen sentido musical, llevando un número tan exigente como "Mintió su cariño" a buen puerto.

 

El público recibió la obra con aplauso, en particular para Alejandro Roy, y sumó un nuevo éxito a una temporada que parece ir bien orientada.
