About

Post-Classical Ensemble ("a welcome, edgy addition to the musical life of Washington" – The Washington Post) in collaboration with Wesleyan University Theater Department and Puppetsweat Theater pay homage to Cervantes' immortal Don Quixote on the occasion of its 400th anniversary. The centerpiece of this multimedia event is Manuel de Falla's rarely staged late masterpiece, Master Peter's Puppet Show, a sublime chamber opera for life-sized puppets that enacts a rambunctious scene from the novel. The program also includes Don Quixote readings, Ravel's classic Don Quixote songs, and Don Quixote music by Jacques Ibert. Part of the etcetera series.
