Musical (1995)


Musique: Master of the Zarzuela
Paroles: Ken Hill
Livret: Ken Hill
Production à la création:

Don José has been exiled from his native Spain for no good reason, and ends up in Southern California in 19th Century Spanish colonial times. His enemies are the villainous Governor Maté, who dreams of becoming America’s first Emperor, with his randy wife, Maria as Empress, and the pirate Lafitte, who eats the odd budgerigar alive. Pretending to be a bewigged fop, accompanied by his mute servant, Bernardo, Don José is able to lead a double life - for his real role is as the masked Zorro, defying the villains, assisting the poor, and pitting his gipsy wits against the villains, and his romantic ardour towards Isabella, the love of his life.

Ken Hill had been fighting cancer for several years and sadly died during rehearsals for this show.
