This doctoral study analyzes some of the most representative salidas and romanzas of Cuban zarzuela. The study examines the multicultural elements of the new style of composition after 1927 with the evolving zarzuela grande in Cuba, the Afro- Cuban and popular rhythms, as well as the European musical patterns that can be found in these pieces. The translation and IPA of the scores will be also provided. This compilation is the first one on the field since most of the pieces have never been published or musically analyzed.
