Rafael Amargo, yes, the Spanish flamenco dancer.

I didn't remember but he said this in an interview in Spain in summer last year:

Quote:
Lleva casi dos décadas bailando y ahora tiene en escena Tiempo muerto, que se prorroga hasta el 1 de septiembre en el teatro Alcalá, en Madrid. Saliendo de allí se va a Los Ángeles y después a Londres, donde va a montar El Zorro. Además del flamenco, ha explorado otros campos de la danza, como bailarín y como coreógrafo. Hay quienes le han llamado un artista ecléctico.

Complete interview in Spanish here

A double page spread in today's Times informs us that Isabel Allende no less, is the producer of this new musical. Here is some of what Ms Allende has to say on the character of Zorro:

Quote:
What I love about Zorro is that he is playful and arrogant enough to love danger for the heck of it. He is more than willing to risk his life to help - but always in a lighthearted way. He is not violent. He doesn't want to kill his enemies but to humiliate them. He is athletic, histrionic, eternally young, a good dancer and always in love. He is the ideal Latin hero, seldom found in real life but always present in women's hearts. He is not tragic; he is a combination of Robin Hood and Peter Pan, plus the craving for justice of Che. He is fun. I want to come back as Zorro!

The world premiere of Zorro in Eastbourne seems to have impressed the local critic:
