Cecilia Valdés is a Cuban zarzuela based on the novel by Cirilo Villaverde. It is a work of importance for its quality, and its revelation of the interaction of classes and races in Havana, Cuba. The story takes place in colonial Cuba around 1830. The young and beautiful mestiza, Cecilia Valdés, is the illegitimate daughter of the powerful land magnate and slave trader, Cándido de Gamboa. Leonardo de Gamboa is his legitimate son. Leonardo falls in love with Cecilia, not realizing that she is his own half-sister, and they become lovers. At the same time, a poor black musician, José Dolores Pimienta, is also hopelessly in love with Cecilia. Cecilia rejects Pimenta's advances and conceives Leonardo's son.
However, the love between Leonardo and Cecilia does not last. He leaves her and becomes engaged to an upper-class white woman, Isabel Ilincheta. Cecilia turns to the faithful Pimienta to plan revenge. On their wedding day, Leonardo is assassinated on the steps of the Cathedral by Pimienta, who acts at Cecilia's instigation. Pimienta is executed and Cecilia imprisoned.
