The Adventures of Zorro  
Written and Created by Founding Owner and Artistic Director, Christina Daly-Smith 


In this original ballet, audiences come alongside young Zorro as he faces the greatest adventure of all-growing up. At the sudden and tragic death of his father, a true hero and legend, Young Zorro must work to find his way in his new fatherless life. Visited by his Father’s GhoZt, encouraged by dear friend margarita, and tormented by the evil Diablo family, Zorro must follow in his father’s footsteps to become the next, Zorro! 


As a boy, Young Zorro, his horse Trueno and his mother Regina, are exiled by the evil Don Diablo. As the years pass, famine falls upon the village. The Diablo’s have overtaxed the poor to line their family purse. Margarita, now grown, and the other villagers are in dire need of a hero to rescue them from the Diablo’s evil regime. It is clear that the brave Margarita must leave the village in search of the long lost boy Zorro and bring him home. 


Young Zorro, now a young man, has spent the last years happily farming with his mother in a desert far from home and painful memories. At least, that is what he thinks. Margarita, guided by desert roadrunners, has finally found her childhood friend, Zorro! But, to her dismay, Zorro is reluctant to return to the village. But with persuasion, a visit from the grave and with the gentle guiding of sweet Agelitas, Zorro takes up his father’s saber and courageously heads back home. 


Zorro is greeted with celebration and joy upon his return home! However, it is time to get to work. The Diablo’s, now a rich and powerful family, are unsuspecting that anything could possibly go wrong at their beloved son’s, The Golden Lion, coming-of-age Presentation of The Medallion ceremony! Little do they know that Zorro has gathered together all the forces and rage of the villagers to reclaim the village as their own. 


The Golden Lion, determined to make Margarita his bride, urges his fiesta guests to join him for a grand dance. He is enraged, however, at the sight of Margarita dancing a fiery Tango with a surprise unidentified guest. Could it be? Zorro has returned and the great siege ensues! The Diablo’s have been captured, Zorro and Margarita are wed and a heartwarming ending that leaves audiences wanting more… 


The End.
