The next stage of the Carnaval takes place in the Theatre of Cadiz (El Falla) where music groups sing their hearts out competing in the most important competition in Cadiz.
The music groups are split in to the following groups:
Each group takes to the stage to sing several predesignated verses:
La Presentación: This has to be completely original and only last 3 minutes.
El Pasodoble: An original composition sung by the Chirigotas and Compases.
El tango An original composition sung by the Coros (choirs) which is their most valued piece.
La parodia (the parody): Sung by the Cuarteto (Quartet) as their most valued piece using Irony,satire and humour.
El cuplé: Sung by all groups though is the highest valued piece of the Chirigotas and should be completely original.
El estribillo (Chorus): Sung by all groups
El popurrí: This lasts up to 8 mins long and consists of music that CANNOT be original, with their own letters put to it. It is obligatory for all groups expect the Quartets who can opt out.
El tema libre (Free Topic): Is an option the Quartet have. It can be a Popurri or a Parody.
