Tomás Bretón was a Spanish musician and composer. Throughout his entire life he was a well-known and highly-esteemed composer, especially as a result of the success of his zarzuela La verbena de la Paloma, although other works were well-received by audiences and critics, such as his óperas Los amantes de Teruel, based on the famous legend, and La Dolores. After his death however, he was a forgotten figure, his extensive and interesting output remaining solely in the memory of a few.
