April 19 - May 4, 2025


Opera San José presents the Northern California premiere of Héctor Armienta’s Zorro. The famed masked vigilante comes alive in this swashbuckling opera filled with romance, humor, and suspense. Set in the early 1800s in el pueblo de Los Angeles, still a colony of Spain, this thrilling new work follows the adventures of the Spanish nobleman who hides his true identity behind a black mask to become Zorro, the dashing defender of the poor and enslaved. With a lush score influenced by mariachi, flamenco, and corrido music, Zorro leaps into dashing sword fights and passionate romance while battling tyranny and corruption and defending California’s disenfranchised and indigenous peoples. Latino stage director David Radamés Toro makes his OSJ debut.
