About the show:
From the daredevil imaginations of Ballet Fantastique’s acclaimed producer-choreographers Donna Marisa and Hannah Bontrager comes ZORRO® The Ballet, re-telling the famed legend of the masked Diego de la Vega, better known as “El Zorro” (“The Fox”).
ZORRO’s® swashbuckling setting—with its great rivals from worlds of privilege—sets the stage for the choreographers’ mischievous exploration of the hero’s complexities. There is Diego, lover of peace and wisdom, as well as Zorro, force of change, clever trickster, famous romantic. And of course, ZORRO® features BFan’s trademark live original music, with gypsy-inspired music by the LA-based Latin fusion band Incendio and virtuoso violinist-composer Kim Angelis. Discussion-inspiring settings for the story's action include the Tongva Native American tribe, early Californian settlers, and Napoleonic Barcelona, complete with pirates. The performance is based on Isabel Allende's ZORRO® novel.
Students of all ages will love ZORRO® The Ballet--with dramatic all-original choreography, witty storytelling, brilliant live music, and playful dance theater.
