ZORRO® The Ballet
Donna and Hannah Bontrager, choreographer-producers
WITH INCENDIO, LIVE FROM LA + VIRTUOSO VIOLINIST KIM ANGELIS

"He had been near death so many times that he had lost his fear of living."
―Isabel Allende, Zorro

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 lover. 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.



See why Portland Monthly Magazine calls Ballet Fantastique “imaginative geniuses.” Experience ZORRO® The Ballet, opening BFan’s NEW LEGENDS season with dramatic all-original choreography, witty storytelling, brilliant live music, and playful dance theater.
