Scheduled for release on 27 May 2016.
Resident Director of the Santiago Philharmonic Orchestra, conductor and composer José Luis Domínguez is one of Chile’s leading musicians. Set in California during the Gold Rush of the mid-nineteenth century, The Legend of Joaquín Murieta is both an exciting contemporary ‘action ballet’ and a standalone work in the great tradition of symphonic film music. Its subject is the Californian brigand Joaquín Murieta, often seen as the inspiration for Zorro, and the struggle of a small settlement against the Galgos (The Hounds), a North American gang of vigilantes who harass immigrants and Native Americans.
