In the scorching heat of California in 1805, a pueblo is under attack from its autocratic leader. Only a hero can save them.
When the danger is at its greatest, a masked crusader appears from nowhere and saves lives. Who is he? Will he be their champion?

 

The famous tale of the masked hero, El Zorro, fighting for justice and freedom comes to the Hope Mill Theatre, Manchester
in an immersive and thrilling new production with passionate, ‘get-on-your-feet’ music by The Gypsy Kings.
International hits including Bamboleo, Baila Me and Djobi Djoba, feature alongside original music to tell a fresh new tale of love, courage and spectacle.

 

The show will see action spreading from the stage through the audience as they become part of the story and witness the thrills and spills of our hero as he battles for everything and everyone he holds dear. Spanish Gypsy pride and fire runs deep throughout the show
with great flamenco choreography, Cante jondo singing, magic, music and, of course, sword fights.

 

The flavour and passion of Spain and 19th Century California comes to Hope Mill and will leave you
with racing hearts, dancing on the tables, tasting the tapas and shouting out the name “El Zorro!”
