Hi, Believe or not, Alborada was not only a soap-era but much more. It was a tool for teaching. Yes, all the social issues recreated by this story provided my students with the visual side of their assigned readings (Spanish Lit. / Colonial) The debates after each week's episodes were enlightening...as were the scenes where women were presented as citizens of 2nd. class...where false pride, hypocrisy, arrogance, abuse to common people and crime were recreated....Even the end, which attempted to show that everybody was equal, was engulfed in falsehood to protect the family's name. Now, my opinion about Luis R. Guzmán' work: His character "El Conde De Guevara" could be a very difficult one...for a much less talented actor. No for Mr. Guzmán. "Adalgisa"..well, she won everybody's heart and applause. "Isabel"...this character got deeper and deeper in our hearts with each "Caray, Caray". A side of Alborada that impressed me the most -and also some of my students- was the way the church was presented. No attempt was made to soften the cruelty of the Santo Oficio and of the Inquisition. A second side that impressed me as much as the first, was the way the aristocrats felt about themselves: Above the law...ready to order the murder of a person at the flip of a coin
