between us

Go big or go home. That was the dictum of my Grandmother Rose, who lived a wildly full 93 years. It’s one I try to hew to in matters personal, professional and aesthetic. It’s risky, it’s juicy, and it’s a whole lot more fun than measured caution. If you look up from your program right now, you’ll find yourself looking at one realllly big stage. It’s the gift of The Alliance, but it’s also the challenge, as it takes a particularly muscular work of art and a particularly audacious collection of artists to fill it up right. Enter Zorro. The classic swashbuckling romance of heroes and villains, intrigue and mystery and old fashioned derring-do. Wait. Not big enough? Okay, let’s throw in the full throated life force that is the music of the Gipsy Kings. No? You want more? How about a director as passionate about flamenco as he is about meticulously crafting thrill ride productions? And just for grins, throw in an international team of dancers, swordsmen, singers and actors who take it as a point of pride that they can fill this great big space with great big emotions? This Zorro has seen a lot of the world. It’s played the UK, Russia, the Far East and beyond. But now it’s here – rethought and retuned for an American audience. So what I say is this: It’s big. It’s home. And now it’s time for you to jump on the ride. Enjoy.

the world of zorro Timeline: Zorro

1919 The Curse of Capistrano, a story by Johnston McCulley, is the first work to feature the fictional character named Zorro.

1920 The Mark of Zorro, a silent film starring Douglas Fairbanks and Noah Beery, premieres.

 936 The Bold Caballero, the first “talking” 1 Zorro movie, debuts.

1940 The Mark of Zorro, a film remake

directed by Rouben Mamoulian, stars Tyrone Power as Zorro, Linda Darnell as his love interest and Basil Rathbone as the villain.

The Mark of Zorro, featuring Noah Beery and Douglas Fairbanks

1922–1959 In response to public demand fueled by the

film, McCulley wrote more than 60 additional Zorro stories. The last one was published posthumously.

1957–1959 Walt Disney produces a half-hour

TV series titled “Zorro,” starring Guy Williams in the title role.

1998 The Mask of Zorro, another film based on

McCulley’s character, is directed by Martin Campbell and stars Antonio Banderas and Anthony Hopkins. In it, the original Zorro (Hopkins) escapes from prison to find his long-lost daughter (Catherine Zeta-Jones) and avenge the death of his wife against a corrupt governor. He is aided by his successor (Banderas), who pursues his own vendetta.

2005 Zorro, a novel by Chilean author Isabel Allende, is The Quest of Zorro

written as a biography and represents the first origin story ever undertaken for the character.

2005 The Legend of Zorro, a sequel to The Mask of Zorro, is again directed by Martin Campbell. Antonio Banderas and Catherine Zeta-Jones reprise their roles as the title hero and his spouse, and Rufus Sewell stars as the villain, Count Armand.

2  010 & beyond Zorro, a musical with music by the Gipsy Kings and John Cameron, book by Stephen Clark and Helen Edmundson, and lyrics by Stephen Clark, is born. The original musical does a successful trial-run tour, and then transfers to London’s West End (with minor changes, including the recasting of the Luisa and Ramon roles).   The Legend of Zorro- featuring Antonio Banderas and Catherine Zeta-Jones

california history Timeline: History of California 1521 New Spain founded after the Spanish conquest of the Aztec Empire, reaching from the Mississippi River to the West, then north to Canada. After initial explorations, the harsh natural conditions and mountain barriers kept European settlement at bay for about 200 years. Native American tribes in the area were hunter-gatherers, their culture differentiated from other tribes because of regional isolation.

1769 Spanish pueblos and missions begin developing the European settlement of California.  The area remains relatively isolated, with ship travel between “New Spain” (Mexico) taking 30 to 50 days.

Above: Present Day Mission San Juan Capistrano. Below: California flag

1776 The U.S. Declaration of Independence is signed. 1789 French Revolution rocks the ancient monarchies of Europe. 1805 Zorro is born. 1821 Mexico, which includes California, gains independence from Spain. 1844 The California Train from the eastern United States breaks through California’s isolation. 1846 The United States takes control of California during the Mexican-American War leads. 1850 California becomes a state.

[Zorro’s] enemies are many, as is often the case with those who defend the weak, rescue damsels in distress, and humiliate the powerful. Naturally, every idealist attracts enemies, but we prefer to count our friends, who are much greater in number. I am compelled to recount these adventures because it serves little purpose for Diego to risk his life for the sake of justice if no one knows it…There are all too few heroes with a romantic heart and a fun-loving nature. Let me say it straight out: There is no one like Zorro.

 El número de rivales [que el Zorro tiene] es considerable, como suele suceder a quienes defienden a los débiles, salvan doncellas y humillan a los poderosos. Naturalmente, todo idealista se echa encima enemigos, pero nosotros preferimos sacar la cuenta de nuestros amigos, que son muchas más. Debo narrar estas aventuras, porque de poco serviría que Diego se jugara la vida por la justicia si nadie se entera…Existen muy pocos heroes de corazón romantic y de sangre liviana. Digámoslo sin rodeos: no hay ninguno como el Zorro.

Celebrated musicians provide authentic sounds for legendary story By Kathy Janich

T

he legend of Zorro has been around since the early 20th century, the music of the Gipsy Kings just since the 1970s, but they seem to have found synergy onstage. The Kings, who come from France and live there still, are largely responsible for bringing the joyful sounds of progressive pop-oriented flamenco to the world, and to Zorro. But it wasn’t always so. The two bands of brothers that make up the 10-member group — the Reyes and Baliardos — began as a Gypsy band that busked on the streets of Cannes, and played weddings and parties. The young men flavored their flamenco with Western pop and Latin rhythms. Their name, originally Los Reyes, comes from their nomadic lifestyle and their heritage; their Spanish Gypsy families fled to France to escape the Spanish civil war in the 1930s. The group’s first two albums attracted little

notice, then, in 1986, they connected with a French record producer named Claude Martinez, who believed they could be more. He nudged them toward a more contemporary sound with Middle East, Latin America, North Africa and rock ‘n’ roll influences. Flamenco purists predicted epic failure. They were wrong. In 1987, the Kings released two songs — “Djobi Djoba” and “Bamboleo.” Both were hits in France. Their first album charted in 12 European countries, including England, which often turns its nose up at international music. Then came the United States. The Kings debuted at the New York Music Seminar, signed with Sony in America and were invited to perform at an inaugural ball for George H.W. Bush (they went home to rest instead) and never really looked back. To date the brothers have produced 20 albums and six videos and, in a sure sign of American success, performed their hit “Bamboleo” on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” in May 2010. No less a music bible than Rolling Stone magazine has described their music as a place

where “Spanish flamenco and Romani rhapsody meet salsa funk.” And now comes Zorro, with more than 30 songs from the Gipsy Kings, co-composer John Cameron and lyricist Stephen Clark. Tony Award-nominated director Christopher Renshaw (The King and I, Taboo) began developing Zorro as a play with musical bits in London in 2001. It wasn’t working. Then a producer took him for a ride in a “rather nice limousine.” Destination unknown. They eventually stopped at an open-air concert venue, where the Gipsy Kings were performing. The producer handed Renshaw a specially made edition of the London Evening Standard with the headline “Chris Renshaw directs Gipsy Kings’ musical Zorro.”

“It was so important to me that Zorro was not to be just a catalog show,” Renshaw says. “The Kings created a treasure chest of new music.” The Alliance edition contains even more new material. Says Renshaw, “Hopefully here we’re producing the definitive version for America.”

Don Diego de la Vega, a wealthy young caballero, is sent away to school in Spain by his father, Don Alejandro. He leaves the feisty young Luisa and his older brother, Ramon. In Spain, Diego abandons his education to find his wild side with the gypsies, entertaining and singing. When Luisa brings him home to California, he returns (with the Gypsy theatrical troupe and Diego’s lover, Inez) to find Ramon a despotic leader. Luisa battles against Ramon while Diego pretends to be an idiot in order to gain Ramon’s trust and to learn the fate of Don Alejandro. At the same time, he creates his alter ego of Zorro—the fox—a masked swordsman in pursuit of justice.

Members of our community respond to the work on the Alliance Stage Moving to Atlanta I felt a loss for the rich cultural life Chicago had offered…not anymore since discovering the Alliance Theatre. From savoring memories of past plays like Pearl Cleage’s What I Learned in Paris that blended the ups and downs of an influential black couple with the impact of electing the first black mayor in Atlanta, to the anticipation of experiencing Zorro, the Alliance proves that great theater enriches our lives no matter where we are. —R  ita Izaguirre, Alliance Theatre Advisory Board Member

Do you appreciate live theatre, enjoy meeting new people and trying new things? If so, then get involved with one of the largest volunteer forces in the arts. The Alliance Theatre volunteer STARS program offers a wide range of opportunities, which includes advocating for live theatre, ushering for Alliance productions, participating in and staffing fundraising & hospitality events, and assisting Alliance staff members with daily office tasks. STARS is composed of four separate organizations working together on fund-saving and fundraising projects to benefit the theatre. The four volunteer groups are the Alliance Children’s Theatre Guild, Alliance Theatre Guild, the Direct Volunteers and the Usher Corps. For more information on becoming a volunteer, please contact Shana Orr at shana.orr@woodruffcenter. org or call 404.733.4761.
