A romantic French take on Spain’s greatest literary hero, starring the incomparable Ferruccio Furlanetto.

Based on the same classic novel that inspired the Broadway hit Man of La Mancha, Don Quichotte is Massenet’s affectionate portrayal of literature’s ultimate dreamer, Don Quixote. Ferruccio Furlanetto, opera’s pre-eminent bass, stars in his intensely moving signature role. Lush melodies and Spanish dance rhythms conjure up medieval Spain at the end of the age of chivalry. In this enchanting production, characters spring out of giant leather-bound storybooks as windmills are fashioned from oversized quills.
