Commentaires : It opened with a short try-out tour, but even so, its first London preview dates were cancelled due to technical problems. By the time of the official opening the show received almost entirely favourable reviews. Its flashy fight scenes, flying scenes, magical disappearances and camp tongue-in-cheek story was described as a “mix of Errol Flynn and Monty Python” making “an insanely enjoyable musical”. The flamenco dancing was a great hit. According to Quentin Letts in the Daily Mail “Blimey, the flamenco! There can’t have been this much foot-stamping since Elton John split from Bernie Taupin”. It ran until March 14 th 2009, and then proceeded to be performed in many different countries, winning many awards, and taking over $75 million dollars at the box office.
Presse : NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Dynamically choreographed musical...A truly highflying musical."
RHODA KOENIG for THE INDEPENDENT says, "Cynical corporate product."
MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "Thoroughly enjoyable musical."
BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, "It’s nonsense, but quite agreeable nonsense...Zorro is fun, but not as much fun as all that."
CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "this almost insanely enjoyable musical, with a fabulous score of stamping flamenco, tavern choruses and tender love songs by the Gipsy Kings, looks like the surprise hit of the summer."
