FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Original MARK OF ZORRO
accompanied by an all-star Quintet
Swashbuckling trumpets and flamenco romance mark this musical adventure
through the 1920 Mark of Zorro, capturing the mood of 19th century Spanish
California with a Flamenco-Tango-Salsa-Mariachi-Jazz score performed live.
Blending action, adventure, romance and comedy in a new way, Douglas
Fairbanks’ portrayal of Zorro, the black-clad outlaw-hero, was to set the standard for all future versions of the film. Fairbanksʼ daring yet graceful stunts made him a cinematic legend.
Capturing the humor of the film, Brendan Cooney’s original score borrows
freely from a variety of Spanish and Latin influenced musical genres from
Flamenco to Tango to Salsa.
