Carlos Arniches
Birth: Oct. 11, 1866
Death: Apr. 16, 1943

Playwright. He was born in Alicante (Comunidad Valenciana) and died in Madrid. His first script for the musical theater was in collaboration with Gonzalo Cantó and composer Ruperto Chapí for “La leyenda del Monje” which premiered at the Apolo Theater in 1890. He is best remembered for his book "La Señorita de Trévelez" that was adapted to the cinema for Juan Antonio Bardem in his film "Calle Mayor", played by Betsy Blair. Also he wrote "sainetes" (comedic plays) and zarzuelas. Among others: El Santo de la Isidra, La Fiesta de San Antón, El amigo Melquíades, Don Quintín el amargao, Es mi hombre, Que viene mi marido and El tío miserias. He worked often with other authors including Ramón Asensio Mas, on El puñao de rosas; Enrique García Álvarez on El iluso Cañizares, El pobre Valbuena and El terrible Pérez and with Eloy Garay in the long zarzuela Mari Eli. He has a memorial in his city of birth.  (bio by: José L Bernabé Tronchoni)
