Los amores de la Inés (The Loves of Inés) is a zarzuela in one act, two scenes, composed by Manuel de Falla in collaboration with Amadeu Vives.[1] The work uses a Spanish language libretto by Emilio Dugi (Mannel Osorio y Bertrand) and the music is organized into a prelude and five musical sections.

The zarzuela was premiered at the Teatro Cómico in Madrid on 12 April 1902.[1] It was the only example of de Falla's five zarzuelas to be actually produced.[2] It has been performed again in 2013, at the Teatro de la Zarzuela, Madrid.
