El Santo

The earlier of the twin sainetes from 1898 that keepTorregrosa's name alive was first seen at Madrid's Teatro Apolo, onFebruary 19th of that year. The title El santo de la Isidra - literally'Isidra's saint', the wise cobbler Eulalio who acts as a minor,madrileño Hans Sachs - also plays on the name of the Saint whosefestival occasions the action of Arniches' sentimental sketch. SaintIsidro (d. 15th May 1172) is Madrid's patron saint, a farmer whoconsecrated his life to work in the city and whose tomb lies in the greatChurch dedicated in his name, close to the Plaza Mayor.
